PROPERTY FROM THE COLLECTION OF HOWARD H.S. CHAO Born in Xixian, Henan province, Howard H.S. Chao (1920-2012) was a well-known journalist in China and Japan. After he moved to the United States in 1952, he taught Chinese at Yale University and authored several books and a syndicated news column. Professor Chao received these two paintings during Zhang Daqian’s visits to the United States, when the artist visited his friend and fellow artist, Wang Fangyu (1913-1997), who was a colleague of Professor Chao.
