Chan (YShit-Chi
Water Colors
Are OnExhibit
Famous Chungking Artist
To Give Demonstration
Of SingularArt Work
From much-bombed Chungking
has come China's "ambassador of
art," Prof. Chang Shu-Chi to the
United States.
An exhibit of Chinese art, featur-
ing his water colors is now being
held in the Mezzanine Galleries of
the Rackham Building. It will con-
tinue through August 8.
Shu-Chi, a member of the Chi-
nese Ministry of Education, recently
completed a painting called "the
Hundred Doves" which was com-
missioned by Generalissimo Chiang
Kai-Shek as a gift for President
Roosevelt. The scroll now hangs in
the White House as a symbol of
peace.
The revolution in Chinese tradi-
tional art has been largely attrib-
uted to Prof. Shu-Chi as well as the
reconciling of the two views of paint-
ing. He is a fast worker, turning
out a water color 13x40 inches in a
half-hour with quick, deft strokes.
During his exhibition here, Prof.
Shu-Chi will spend some time in the
galleries giving demonstrations of
his painting.
At the conclusion of his tour, Prof.
Shu-Chi will return to Chungking
to resume his war duties with the
Ministry of Education.
