The Exhibition

This exhibition will showcase the bank’s art and photographic collections that depict scenes of trading hubs Canton, Hong Kong and Macau, which were common themes in the China Trade art genre. From portraits of merchants to studies of junks and landscapes by artists like George Chinnery, these works captured the spirit of a new era of discovery and connection in the region two hundred years ago.


Apart from paintings and drawings, photographs and post cards also illustrated Hong Kong’s rapid development into an important trading hub, attracting people from all over the world to seek business and development opportunities in the once fishing village.
