In dating the three works, their order starting with the latest one is "Whispering Pines in Myriad Valleys" (1124) from 897 years ago, followed by "Early Spring" (1072) from 949 years ago, and then "Travelers Among Mountains and Streams," which is not dated but is more than a thousand years old. Considering the age of these national treasures and the fragile silk on which they are painted, they require extra protection and special care. As a result, their exposure to light is extremely limited; they must rest in storage for at least three years after exhibit and be displayed each time for no more than 42 days. The National Palace Museum has chosen the period from October 6 to November 16 of this year (2021) to present them for a little over a month before renovations are scheduled to take place at its Northern Branch in Taipei. With this truly special exhibition of "A Trio of National Treasures," it has been ten years since they last appeared in"Splendid Treasures: A Hundred Masterpieces of the National Palace Museum on Parade" (2011), making it a once-in-a-decade event to be cherished by all.
In addition to these National Treasures, nine other paintings have been chosen for exhibit to demonstrate the influence of these three Song masters' styles. Ranging in date from the Yuan dynasty to the Republican period, each work shows how later artists derived inspiration from the past. These later emulators not only subtly yet concretely captured the tradition of the three masters' styles, they also demonstrate the lofty status that Fan Kuan, Guo Xi, and Li Tang held in the history of Chinese landscape painting. In the galleries is also high-resolution 8K video introducing these three national treasures along with a multimedia piece entitled "Into the Painting" and the animation "Traveling Through Brush and Ink." The richness of this exhibit and the presentation of rare paintings together will certainly fulfill the yearning of audiences to immerse themselves in the worlds of these masterpieces.
