T.T.Tsui gallery of Chinese Art, room 44
Chinese artist and writer Chiang Yee (1903-1977) came to Britain in 1933 where he lived and worked until 1955. During this time he wrote, among other things a successful series of illustrated travelogues using the pen name ‘Ya xing zhe’ or ‘The Silent Traveller’. This display explores Chiang’s creative endeavours through a selection of original illustrations and sketches from the Silent Traveller series and other books as well as designs and archival material which describe his life and work in Britain.
