Veteran collector, Mr. Yeh Chie Chung (1948-2008) started his collecting journey in the 1970s and built an impressive collection of Chinese classical and modern paintings. He immersed himself in various fields of research, with a specialty in calligraphy. Important works from Mr. Yeh’s collection have been on loan to the National Museum of History in Taipei and the National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts (formerly known as Museum of Fine Arts in Taichung). A man of bold and generous character, Mr. Yeh was one of the founding members of the Ching Wan Society in Taipei, one of the world’s most renowned associations of Chinese collectors. His friends held him in high esteem.
