The Los Altos History Museum honored internationally acclaimed artist Paul Hau on the occasion of his 100th birthday May 18. Hau, a Los Altos resident since 1963, is known for his work combining the Chinese brush tradition with impressionistic art. He is pictured at right, holding a proclamation presented to him by Los Altos Mayor Jeannie Bruins, second from left. Also pictured is Mary Hau, his wife of more than 70 years, and Ed Taft, president of the museum’s board of directors. Hau’s work is featured in museums abroad and locally, including the Asian Art Museum, the de Young Museum and the San Jose Museum of Art. The museum has scheduled a solo exhibition of Hau’s work Oct. 13 through Nov. 13 in the main gallery of the museum, 51 S. San Antonio Road. For more information, visit losaltoshistory.org.
