Famous Paintings: Travel Back to the City Public Auditorium in 1929

Author Chiao-Pi Lin
Award 2020 Golden Tripod Award

(English) How should we evaluate and judge a series of paintings from a different political time and space in the previous century? How did they end up in Zhongshan Hall? And why has the world forgotten about them? The painters were Taiwanese or Japanese? We don’t have enough clues, except Taiwan Daily News, August 2, 1929 (the 4th year of Showa)… These long-forgotten paintings only reappeared at the end of 2002 and sent to the Taipei Fine Arts Museum when Taipei Zhongshan Hall’s storage room was being reorganized. In 2005, art librarian (and famous translator) Lin Jiao-bi embarked on a magical trip to Japan, where she visited many times and traveled all over the country, revealing the background of those paintings and the painters’ stories that were once sealed in history. With the kindest and the most vivid style, Lin tells readers a warm and memorable story of the past that happened across countries.

(Español) ¿Cómo analizaríamos una serie de cuadros desde un tiempo, espacio y políticas del siglo pasado? ¿Por qué han terminado en la sala de Zhongshan? ¿Y por qué el mundo se ha olvidado de ellos? ¿Los artistas fueron taiwaneses o japoneses? No tenemos pistas suficientes, a excepción de un artículo en el Taiwan Daily News del dos de agosto de 1929 (cuarto año de la era Showa)… Por largo tiempo olvidadas, estas pinturas sólo aparecieron a finales de 2002 y fueron enviadas al Museo de Bellas Artes de Taipéi cuando la bodega de la sala de Zhongshan tuvo una limpieza. En 2005 un bibliotecario de arte (y famoso traductor), Lin Jiao-Bi, comenzó un viaje a Japón que lo llevaría a visitar por varias ocasiones el país para dar luz al contexto y vida de los creadores que por tanto tiempo estuvieron olvidados. Con un estilo muy elocuente y gran corazón, Lin le comparte a sus lectores esta cálida e inolvidable historia que sucedió entre países.

Publisher Information
  • To promote the scholarly community and to participate in the cultivation of cultural heritage, Shin Kong Institution founded Asian Culture Publishing in 1982. Publishing good books has always been the principle that Asian Culture Publishing upholds. Because of such dedication, Asian Culture has won numerous acknowledgements from the National Golden Tripod Award and Publication Award of Excellence. In view of the scarcity of publications on the subjects of humanity, outreach, and global perspectives in recent years, we focus especially on publishing heavyweight materials on such subjects to expand Taiwanese readers’ dimensions, and in turn, help in searching for Taiwan’s future.
