Husband and wife couple Jeffrey Lo Wan-shu and Esther Tam Mei-yung emigrated to Canada in 1973. They established the Chun Wah Chinese Arts Studio and have been Chairman and Honorary Director of the Ontario Chinese Artists’ Association for many years. Jeffrey Lo studied painting under the renowned bird-and-flower painter Zhang Shaoshi (Cheung Shiu-shek, 1914–91). He favours the “boneless” method in painting flowers, employing the light and colour techniques of the Geshan School of Ju Chao (1811–65) and Ju Lian (1828–1904). Esther Tam studied different painting genres with masters including Li Fenggong (1883–1967), Liang Boyu (Leung Pak-yu, 1903–78), He Shuhui (Ho Shuk-wai, b. 1919) and Tang Hong (b. 1926). She practices in the style of the Song dynasty painting academy, using detailed brushwork and the realistic depiction of birds and flowers. They are particularly skilled in painting peonies.

這是配合香港大學美術博物館舉辦「天香國色歲華春:勞允澍、譚美容繪畫」展覽出版的圖錄。

勞允澍、譚美容伉儷於一九七三年自香港移民加拿大,成立春華畫苑,並出任安省中國美術會會長及榮譽會長多年。勞允澍追隨張韶石門下,研習花鳥畫。他擅長沒骨花卉,深受以居巢、居廉為首的嶺南隔山派所影響。譚美容師承李鳳公、梁伯譽、何叔惠、唐鴻等老師,擅長宋代院體工筆花鳥畫。勞氏伉儷特別喜畫牡丹。
