Jointly presented by the Leisure and Cultural Services
Department and Tate, United Kingdom
Jointly organised by the Hong Kong Museum of Art and Tate, United Kingdom

Venue
The Special Gallery, 2/F & The Attic, 5/F, Hong Kong Museum of Art

Drawn from Tate's world famous collection, this exhibition features 76 masterpieces that illustrate the remarkable development of British Landscape Painting and its influence on European art from 17th century to the present day. Highlights include paintings from the two most significant British landscape masters of all time, J.M.W. Turner and John Constable, as well as the largest painting ever completed by the contemporary artist David Hockney.

To complement the exhibition, we have invited Hong Kong artists to respond to the British artworks on display and the museum's own collection of landscape paintings. These responses invite visitors to consider the exhibition from a unique Hong Kong viewpoint.
