The catalogue for this exhibition is graced with three illuminating essays, each dealing with various aspects of the life of the artist, the evolution of her art, and the special characteristics of her technique and style of painting. Most germane is of course the essay by the artist herself, one in which Tseng Yuho recounts significant markers in her personal and professional life. This material is given added point and perspective by an interview with the artist conducted by Dr. Michael Martin, Dean of Faculty at the University of Hong Kong, that is being published in the May issue of Orientations to coincide with the exhibition in New York. The catalogue essays by Melissa Thompson, Assistant Professor in the Department of East Asian Studies at Colby College, and Dr. Stephen J. Goldberg, Assistant Professor of Asian Art at Hamilton College, give very valuable historical, art-historical and aesthetic perspective on the paintings of Tseng Yuho. The journal’s preface by Howard Rogers provides a narrative on the life of the artist.
