His work “Plum flowers” that he specialized is the most popular flower for many of people. Therefore, he especially gives this work to the 60-year-old Grand Hotel. The plum flowers drawn by master Wang are graceful with light fragrance and far between branches, they are not afraid of cold weather. There are many painters who draw plum flowers; however, the plum flowers drawn by master Wang are vital and surpassingly beautiful. He deserves to be called the “King of Plum Flowers”.
The well-known calligrapher Su Shi-Shu from China has stayed in the Grand Hotel for many times.
