This catalog is one of the first Chinese furniture exhibitions in the US which includes a significant number of Chinese hardwood furniture from the collection of the Honolulu Academy of Arts and many private collections in Hawaii. These early collections were amassed under scholarly guidance, and thus contains many beautiful and elegant examples. With essays and catalog entries by Robert H. Ellsworth, a foremost Chinese furniture authority in the West, this catalog not only serves as a fine reference but also provides an insight into the growing popularity of Chinese furniture in the West. Additional contributions by Howard A. Link of the Honolulu Academy of Arts.
