LIANG YI MUSEUM

181-199 Hollywood Road, Sheung Wan

 

The four-storey museum is home to one of the world's largest and best-curated collections of Chinese antique furniture, made of the treasured materials huanghuali and zitan, from the Ming and Qing dynasties. Started in the 1980s with many of the earlier pieces purchased right here on Hollywood Road, the collection has grown to over 300 pieces three decades later. Selected pieces have been exhibited in other museums, primarily the National Museum of History in Taiwan. 

The Liang Yi Museum also houses the world's premier collection of bejewelled clutches, compacts and powder boxes. Made in the finest design houses such as Cartier, Boucheron and Van Cleef & Arpels, these necessaries and minaudieres, glittering with precious stones and showing exquisitely detailed craftsmanship, were once a staple of every lady's evening wear. With nearly 400 examples from the late 1880s through to the 1960s, this dazzling collection provides an elegant peek at a bygone era and has been lent out to other museums in the past, including the Palace Museum in Beijing and Goldsmiths Hall in London.

Scholar's Ink Studio Ltd. provides art advisory and curatorial services, with a particular focus in promoting contemporary Asian ink art.

The mission of The Ink Society is to foster a broader understanding and appreciation of modern and contemporary art that is based on or inspired by the ink tradition through an extensive range of programming, education and outreach activities.

The Ink Society has been a strong and persistent advocate for the establishment of an Ink Art Centre in Hong Kong. Ink art is a unique and important aspect of Chinese culture, one that continues to evolve and adapt in modern times. Ink art is more than just an art form; ink art is a tradition, a culture and a way of life. The Ink Art Centre is an original and differentiating concept, and we believe that a world class Ink Art Centre will be a focal point for the local community as well as a destination for visitors from all over the world.
