Zhang Daqian is famous for his expert knowledge of Chinese painting history and techniques, and his work is in many museums worldwide, sometimes unexpectedly.     Ten things you should know about him.  Rather oddly, his work includes a silk dress.

Gao Qipei specialised in finger painting.  If you can’t get to the Laoning Museum, but the Ashmolean has this wonderful handscroll.
