Dear all,

It's been a rich and joyful year for Chinese art lovers in Hong Kong. Following the Qing imperial wedding exhibition earlier this year, two more Qing imperial themed exhibitions have recently been launched in Hong Kong. I visited the Qing imperial birthday celebration exhibition at the HK History Museum twice this week (I visited alone the first time. I went there again with my wife the following day). I have to say, what a magnificent exhibition! Many amazing treasures from the palace are featured. I look forward to visiting the other exhibition featuring exhibits from the Mental Cultivation Palace in the Forbidden City  (the residence and workplace of most Qing rulers since Yongzheng Emperor) at the HK Heritage Museum someday. Definitely not during the weekend as there's always a huge crowd!

Let me share with you all some of the things I saw on my recent visit.

Best to all,
Samson

I agree with Samson. Hong Kong has suddenly woken up to its Chinese heritage with these three exhibitions in 2017.
Unfortunately no snuff bottles on display at either exhibition but there are many other original treasures from Beijing in the two currently open.

The timing is no doubt related to the 20 Year Anniversary of the handover of Hong Kong and the recent visit of Chinese President Xi Jinping and his wife.

But we are all waiting for the opening of the new Hong Kong Palace Museum in the Western Kowloon Cultural Centre, which will have both permanent and occasional exhibits of treasures from the Palace Museum in Beijing. This will include snuff bottles and will be a great attraction for members. Not sure when it is due to be opened.

Dear Geoff, Toni-Lee and George,

I'm glad that you enjoyed the pictures. I will share about the other exhibition when I get the time to visit it.

Yes Geoff, you're right. Everything conincides with the 20th anniversary of the handover. The HK Palace Museum is scheduled to be completed in 2022 according to the news reports.

Best to all,
Samson

Dear Samson,
thank you for sharing this pictures. I recognize Kangxi in the first portrait. Who is the emperor of the second portrait, Kangxi at old age perhaps?
Dear all, I apologize for my absence, but be sure I am here. Too many stuffs and issues to take care of. I promise I will be more present.
Kind regards
Giovanni

Dear Giovanni,

Welcome back! Hope all is well with you. The second portrait is Qianlong emperor when he was 80 or something. Smiley

Best,
Samson

Thank you dear Samson.
Quite interesting, the only portrait of Qianlong that I knew is the famous one on his horse, painted by Castiglione.
Kind regards

Dear Samson,

     Thank you for the 'personal invitation' [ Roll Eyes Grin Wink].
I'd NOT seen the thread before. I don't know why I don't always get notified of new posts or threads.
Wonderful show. Till when is it on? I'm hoping to visit HKG in mid-Jan.2018.
Best,
Joey

Dear Joey,

You're most welcome! I'm still waiting for the chance to visit the Mental Cultivation Palace exhibition that is held concurrently with this one at a different museum. I wish you could see these amazing exhibitions. Unfortunately, they are here only for 3 months. I hope there will be an exhibition as worth seeing as these ones by the time you visit HK in coming Jan.

Best,
Samson
