Description

After you visit the Qingshui Zushi Temple, you can go to this gallery if you want to know more about the life stories of Li Mei-shu. The small gallery exhibits masterpieces, personal items and documents of the art master. Some of his works are ingenious, such as Boy Teasing Turkey, which was painted with 3D skills like that of Mona Lisa’s Smile. Some of his works, however, show the beauty of simplicity, such as landscape paintings of his beloved hometown Sanxia. When you look at Li’s art work which features local people, culture and landscape, it is not hard to understand why he would devote half of his lifetime to the renovation of the Qingshui Zushi Temple, which set the record of renovation time and sophistication in Taiwanese history. Li’s son, who appears in some of Li’s paintings, is a docent at the gallery. His narration of his father’s works makes the visit even more interesting. * NTD$100
