Celebrating Chang Dai-Chien
Chang Dai-chien is one of the most acclaimed Chinese artists of the 20th century. To mark the 120th anniversary of his birth and 47 years since his previous solo show at the museum, we are inaugurating the newly renovated Chinese painting gallery with Chang Dai-chien: Painting from Heart to Hand. Comprising works donated to the museum by the artist, as well as loans from his friends and family, the exhibition spotlights Chang’s groundbreaking modernization of ink painting.
Chang Dai-chien: Painting from Heart to Hand is organized by the Asian Art Museum of San Francisco. Presentation is made possible by The Tan Family Education Foundation, and an anonymous donor in honor of Jay Xu. Additional support is provided by Kathy and Paul Bissinger, Chip and Juliet Bergh, Martha Sam Hertelendy, Angela and Gwong-Yih Lee, John and Barbara Osterweis, Terra Foundation for American Art, Bing Shen and Terry Yip, and Paul and Kathy Yih.
