Chinese Paintings from the Kingdom of Min

Chinese Paintings from the Kingdom of Min at Duke University. "...In this age of global markets and interdisciplinary research, an appreciation of the customs and culture of another country is as essential as knowledge of its language, science, and economics. This exhibit of paintings and calligraphy offers a sample of China’s art and its history, as revealed in the story of the independent Kingdom of Min, now called Fujian. The works on display are from the collection of Professor and Mrs. Paul Wang, who care passionately about sharing the art of China with others. Professor Wang was born in Fujian, China; he came to Duke in 1968 to join the faculty of the School of Engineering."
