One of four posters issued by the Hong Kong Tourist Association in the early 1960's using artwork by renowned Califonian watercolourist, Dong Kingman. This image looks across the harbour from Causeway Bay with the Noon Day Gun and the Royal Hong Kong Yacht Club in the foreground.

This is the scarce first issue of this poster. It was subsequently reissued with a Jet BOAC tagline at the bottom.


Dong Kingman

Dong Kingman (1911-2000) was a Chinese American artist born in California but educated in Hong Kong. He is recognized as one of the leading watercolour masters and a pioneer of the California school of painting. Kingman was the recipient of nearly every major award for watercolours including two Guggenheim Fellowships (1942/1943), a Metropolitan Museum of Art Award (1975) and the American Watercolor Society's Dolphin Medal (1987). His work is represented in the permanent collections of 50 museums including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Whitney Museum and Museum of Modern Art.
