Michael Sullivan: A Life of Art and Friendship
Oxford OX1 2PH
Michael Sullivan, who died aged 96 in September 2013, was a leading scholar of Chinese art.
He was also able to build up an outstanding collection of modern Chinese art through his life-long friendships with prominent Chinese artists who presented many inscribed paintings, prints, drawings, and albums to him and his wife Khoan. Their collection has been bequeathed by Michael Sullivan to the Ashmolean, and this selection of works commemorates his long and fruitful life of art and friendship.
