When the Jao Tsung-I Petite Ecole of The University of Hong Kong was established in 2003, Professor Jao Tsung-i contributed two sets of donations, which can be regarded as the major portion of this academic institute. The contributions consist of over 30,000 book collections of Professor Jao’s, which includes hundreds kinds of wood board printed editions of the Ming and Qing dynasties. The other part of the contributions comprises his calligraphy, paintings and studio objects accomplished over the years.

Professor Jao selected his most representative works from those had done in the past decades. Moreover, he has consecutively donated his new art works as the collections of the Petite Ecole, with more than 200 items. These artworks not only symbolize his artistic development and achievements, but we can also learn how a scholar artist reaches great attainments in both fields.
