Enduring Strength and Passion

The Chinese and Western Art of Ting Yin Yung

A compilation of Ting Yin Yung’s paintings and other artwork from his life in Hong Kong.

University Museum and Art Gallery’s exhibition is authoritative in its display of Ting Yin Yung’s oil and ink paintings, watercolors, sketches, and seals, all of which cover the most productive decades of his working life in Hong Kong. The project is also highly community-centered, as the development of this project benefited greatly from the input of Ting’s students, who continue to treasure their master’s passion and the instructive lessons and conversations that nurtured a generation of local artists.

A native of Maoming County in Guangdong province, Ting Yin Yung first studied Western painting in Tokyo at the Kawabata Painting School in 1920, and then at the Tokyo School of Fine Arts. He began working in mainland China in 1925, before emigrating to Hong Kong in 1949, where he developed his artistic practice as a painter, seal carver, and greatly admired teacher. Heavily illustrated in full color, Enduring Strength and Passion is a stunning exhibition catalog that captures the full beauty and skill of Ting Yin Yung’s legacy.
