The Singapore pioneer artist Chen Wenhsi was awarded a Meritorious Service Medal at the 1992 National Day Honours Awards. A Dialogue with Tradition is an exhibition organised by the National Museum of Singapore to commemorate his investiture. On display are 43 Chinese ink paintings executed in the last decade of his life. These paintings represent the culmination of his stylistic development in integrating the disciplines of Post-impressionism with traditional Chinese ink painting. The present monograph includes articles by Kwok Kian Chow, Dr. Earl Lu, Dr. Chen Siew Min and Shao Da Zhen.
