"Since the opening of the Jiushi series of art institutions five years ago, we have made it our core mission to present the cultural treasures of Shanghai and the whole world," says Bao. "This year marks the 60th anniversary of the publication of Tong's book Jiangnan Yuanlin Zhi (On Classical Gardens in Southeastern China), which was the first academic documentation of traditional Chinese gardens in the Yangtze River Delta area, and we believe this is a good opportunity to introduce Tong to the public," she adds.

The exhibition consists of two parts: Grand Tour of a Chinese Architect, which opened on Friday at Jiushi Art Museum, featuring more than 80 sketches and watercolor paintings that Tong created during a tour of Europe in 1930; and Gardens in South-Eastern China, running through May 21, at Jiushi Art Salon, featuring his studies of traditional gardens in the Yangtze River Delta area.
