The Xiu Hai Lou Collection is one of the most extensive private collections of ink art in Singapore. This catalogue is published in conjunction with the exhibition Rediscovering Treasures: Ink Art from the Xiu Hai Lou Collection, and captures the stunning breadth of the Collection. Full-colour image plates showcase works which range from the ancient aesthetics of Ming and Qing painting and calligraphy through to the prized masterpieces of 20th-century ink masters, while newly commissioned essays analyse the unique place of the Collection in local art history. Rounding out the catalogue are an exclusive interview with the current custodians of the Collection as well as an exploration of the ecosystem of collecting.
