Members are in for a special treat with this visit to the home of artist and collector Rosamond Brown. The house was originally built by a British architect in 1880 as his residence and later owned by the Shell Corporation until after the Second World War. Rosamond and her husband Charles, an architect, purchased the house in 1967 and have renovated the building and its accompanying garden over the years into a beautiful estate. 

Rosamond Brown is a painter. She first taught extra mural courses at HKU, and later at the University’s Art Faculty under John Prescott and Martha Lesser. She and her husband were friends with and collected works by Hon Chi Fun, Gaylord Chan, Cheung Yee, Lai Shu Kwan, Liu Guo Sung and Irene Chow. She is also involved in M+.
