Chen Cheng-po Tamsui Scenery (2), 1935 Chen Cheng-po had deep affection for Taipei’s Tamsui scenery. During 1935 to 1937, he created a series of essential works where he applied his keen observations and unique perspective composition. In this piece, the main focus is on a cluster of ancient Fujianese-style buildings in Tamsui. Red roofs with tiles and shades of the green foliage reveal an “exceptionally beautiful” scenery, and add more historicity to the landscape.
