On view are 21 illustrations from a Ming dynasty album 8 Views of Xiao-Xiang & Landscapes Inspired by Tang Poems by Liu Yu (1620-c. 1689). Both works are from the permanent collection. The artists who created these albums were followers of the late Ming dynasty (1368-1644) Wu School, known primarily for its genteel, lightly colored landscapes and fluent, graceful calligraphy.
