Professor Jao Tsung-i, widely honoured as “master of Sinology”, has earned worldwide reputation. With remarkable achievements and outstanding contributions in literature, arts, academics, Professor Jao is a rare giant of the century. The connection between Professor Jao and Macao is profound. Professor Jao’s attention and support to Macao’s cultural arena are shown by generous donations of his artworks and pieces of writing to the cultural departments of Macao. To promulgate Chinese culture and arts, the Macao SAR Government establishes the Jao Tsung-I Academy and holds the permanent exhibition Calligraphies and Paintings Donated by Jao Tsung-I, making the professor’s excellent artworks accessible to visitors.
