Mr. Yan Shui-long(顏水龍先生) was one of the most famous painters Tainan has produced. Born at Hongmaocuo(紅毛厝, Xiaying), he was encouraged by a Japanese, Mr. Sawada Takeo(澤田武雄先生), to study painting in Japan and he later studied in Paris. He was a pioneer of oil painting in Taiwan. After Yan passed away in 1997, to commemorate his contribution to public art and fine art, the memorial garden was established. The park has a memorial hall and family temple; the master’s life’s experience are introduced and his works displayed in the hall. The park has a beautiful environment and a very tranquil atmosphere. The family temple in Minnan architectural style is also worth visiting. To learn about this master of early modern art in Taiwan, Yan Shui-long Memorial Park is the place to visit.
