Painting conservation materializes 'warming ties' between China and Taiwan
A report at theThe Independent shows how conservation may mean much more than the mere physical reintegration of a painting.
Two pieces of "Dwelling in the Fuchun Mountains", a 660-year-old painting by Huang Gongwang have been held in separate institutions since1949 - one piece in Taipei, another in the Zhejiang province of China. They are about to be reunited for a 40-day exhibit in Taiwan, as a signal of warming ties between the governments of China and Taiwan.
