I went to an exhibition of Lim Chen Hoe's work, from the 1930's to the 1970's. These watercolour paintings depicted the changes which occurred in Singapore during those decades, from little houses and huts early on, to high rise buildings in the 1970's. There are also quite a few excellent portraits, including a self-portrait. Lim worked full-time in an administrative job, supporting a wife and five children. He was only able to practise his art on Sundays, when he used to join other artists beside the river and paint en plein air.
