Chinese scrolls and fan paintings are quite detailed and elaborate works, and taking in their detail can be a fantastic experience. This particular collection is a donation from the late University of Wisconsin - Madison Professor Tse-Tsung Chow who, with his wife, donated over 120 calligraphic and painted Chinese scrolls and fans from the 18th through the 20th century. Recently, the entire collection was digitized by the Special Collections Department of the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee Libraries, and it is available here. The collection offers primary examples of Chinese culture spanning over two hundred years, and educators in art history, geography, foreign languages, and international studies courses will find it particularly useful. Visitors can use the viewing device here to scroll through the images, pausing to zoom into the details of each work of art. Also, users can learn more about each item via a thorough bibliographic entry.
