Oil is a traditional medium from the West. It became a mainstream in the art sector of China in the 20th Century. However, this foundation work is losing its popularity in Hong Kong. The exhibition features 22 local oil paintings. All are from the Sun Museum collection. We hope to inherit and promote this traditional art as well as acknowledge the achievement of local artists.
