    FROM THE CHANG FAMILY COLLECTION
    Raymond Chang Pang Tseng and Cecilia Chang Chen Zhou Ling are natives of Shanghai. In the late 1950s they moved to Hong Kong, where they started their family and acquired these art works. Eventually they settled in the United States in the 1990s and brought with them their collection, which was a source of great pleasure.
