This was the only work he produced using fiberglass.

Besides Zhang's work, the collection includes some ancient ink paintings collected by Zhang and sold to the Chews. The couple's own artistic vision for their collection is also evident, as seen in their acquisition of works by Chinese masters such as ancient painter Dong Qichang, calligrapher Wen Zhenming, as well as modern masters such as Qi Baishi and Xu Beihong. Zhang even inscribed some of the couple's ancient paintings.

Before the exhibition in New York, the collection toured San Francisco and Los Angeles, where it attracted many art lovers, says Fang.

"Zhang has big influence in these areas of the U.S. because many local galleries have held his solo shows. He also had a close relationship with many American artists and photographers, which brought him wide recognition," says Fang.
