One of the first women painters of Modern Art in China, the story of Pan Yuliang (1895-1977) has suffered from a lack of data and a surfeit of fiction.  Almost completely unknown in the USA, Pan has had a long life online, in Chinese TV, opera, film, and newsprint.  Sara Sheldon, art historian and administrator as well as author, began research to document the life of Pan Yuliang in 1991 and has remained undaunted by the lockdown of scholarship in China as well as the onslaught of raunchy fiction about the artist seeping into the Western world.
