Some 51 works by Wu Guanzhong are on show at the Chinese Fine Art Gallery at the Hong Kong Museum of Art in Tsim Sha Tsui until August 29th.
Considered to be one of 20th-century China's most innovative and important artists, Wu recently donated a number of works to the museum's permanent collection.

Admission to the event costs HK$10 and can be purchased directly from the Hong Kong Museum of Art.
