Footnotes

  • Provenance:
    Private collection Dr Jerry Lim, Singapore, acquired directly from the artist under recommendation of Dr Earl Lu

    Note:
    Dr. Jerry Lim and the late Dr. Earl Lu Ming Teh were best of friends, doctors who were trained overseas but dedicated their medical career to Singapore even before Singapore gained independence in 1965. The late Dr. Earl Lu was a disciple of Chen Wen Hsi. An artist in his own right and the founding chairman of the Singapore Art Museum, he was also considered as one of Singapore's most prominent art patrons and philanthropists. Most of Dr. Earl Lu's art collections were donated to various institutions in Singapore, including the National University of Singapore Museum, LaSalle-SIA College of the Arts and the Asian Civilisations Museum.

    註:
    Jerry Lim 醫生與盧明德醫生同為海外受訓歸國效力的醫務人才,並為多年摯友。盧明德行醫百忙之中,又跟隨陳文希學畫,不僅自己是頗有建樹的藝術家及新加坡藝術館的奠基人,更成為新加坡有名的藝術慈善家。新加坡各大博物館以及藝術機構多獲贈盧醫生的私人收藏。
