Artist profile:

Earl Lu Ming Teh (Dr) (15 September 1925 - 2 September 2005), was considered one of Singapore’s most prominent art patrons and philanthropists. A medical surgeon by profession, Lu was a keen art collector and served on several institutional boards to help promote visual arts and art education in Singapore. An artist in his own right, Lu was known for his paintings of roses which he often presented for sale at fundraising exhibitions.

Lu was equally generous with his knowledge of art; as founding chairman of the Singapore Art Museum, his foresight led to the museum acquiring many 20th-century Southeast Asian works. This collection may have become the largest among the world’s museums at the time of Lu’s passing. For his services to the nation, Lu was appointed a justice of the peace in 1989, and received the Bintang Bakti Masyarakat (Public Service Star) in the 1995 National Day Awards.
