Let’s Play
Let’s Play

The universal act of playtime appeals to all, both children and adults alike.  Psychologists confirm that play is a fundamental stage in human development, yet playtime is a luxury. In the past, there was little time for education or play. Over time, children became a cherished part of the family to be nurtured and protected. “Let’s Play” explores our best moments in developmental activities, ranging from flying kites in ancient China, Lewis Chessmen during the Viking era to circus fanfare in 19th century Europe. Experience the joys and laughter of by-gone eras today.

From foreign tropical scenery to their own gardens, artists' obsessions with flowers and trees are everlasting, leaving countless paintings of their beloved plants. Throughout the years, the fragrance of flowers and fruits have been preserved on the canvas. The elegance stays still, whispering beautiful love stories. In this theme, we will listen to the words of the flowers and trees. In the parterre or forest, from spring to winter, we will trace the footprints of the lovers, to the place where the flowers are in full bloom.

Gathering of the Greats

Catching a glimpse of a thousand years in a painting, the beauty shall never fade. Witnessing the rising and setting of the sun, as the four seasons change and flow, colours shine brilliantly still. Master's brushwork can be sharp or tender, and those imitations will only make a masterpiece more precious and eternal. From the biblical stories praised by Renaissance giants to the neon modern metropolitans; From the poetic life depicted in Chinese landscape paintings to the aura of impressionist paintings; Then to the beautiful women in Mucha's illustrations and the ukiyo-e prints of Hokusai... These works of art record the history of mankind, and like our admiration for the masters, they are everlasting.

As residents of the planet, animals, wild and domestic, are our best friends throughout history. Our stories are intertwined with theirs and the images of animals are everywhere, as metaphors, symbols or decorative ornaments. 

In the contemporary world, when environmental topics are brought to the fore, we care more and more about these friends who have been with us for countless generations. In this theme, we will look at animals in pervious artworks, representing our passion for animals as always.

In this post-epidemic era, nostalgia may germinate as people long to visit the heart-warming world of nature. From Rococo styled floral decorations to costume fashions during the Regency era, the romance and splendour once treasured in castles or manor houses are now rediscovered and reshown. The secret parterre in which plant families, flowers, birds and insects live together is revealed and brought to life under the depiction by botanists and artists. The perfect collision of nature and geometry has led to the composition of various patterns and motifs. In this theme, ARTiSTORY renews the botanical affair and revisits the kingdom Plantae with luxuriant foliage and flourishing blossom.
