Wang Fangyu (1913-1997), as an artist, a scholar, and a connoisseur, embodied the late Ming ideals of the literati gentleman. Wang’s artistic and scholarly life is explored through the personal tools of his studio, the woodblock-printed seal books in his library, his own art, and selected works form his collection. These include works by Bada Shanren, Dong Qichang, Jin Nong, and Chang Daqian, artists who were the focus of his research and who influenced his own artistic production.
