David Kwo Da-wei (1919-2003) was a Beijing-born artist, who had spent his retirement years in Singapore. His oeuvre included traditional landscape painting, figure painting and flower-and bird genre. But it was his portrayal of small animals, especially cats and dogs that became his hallmark. Before he died, he donated 105 of his paintings to the Lee Kong Chian Art Gallery of the National University of Singapore. This book contains a catalogue of those paintings as well as several essays on the artist.
