When Xie Zhiliu and his wife Chen Peiqiu visited Hong Kong, they stayed with my parents most of the time. During those days when they didn’t have social engagements or when inclement weather prevented them from going out, my mother would ask them to paint something for her two daughters. This is the provenance of these two paintings dedicated to me, Xie and Chen’s grand-niece.
