In April the artist Huang Dewei presented a novel exhibition of Chinese landscape painting in the Charles Chu Asian Art Reading Room. Unlike much contemporary Chinese landscape art, Mr. Huang’s works eschew traditional literati style and are painted in oil on canvas. The exhibition has returned to China, but Mr. Huang made a gift to the College of one of the paintings, Farm House. Mr. Huang is a professor at the Academy of Fine Arts of Guizhou Normal University.
