A collection of Chinese paintings and calligraphy by Chu Ta (1626-1705) was exhibited at the Vassar College Art Gallery. An unsigned appreciation in The Miscellany News praised Chu as "on of the great Individualist painters of his era," asserting that his "daring simplifications of form, free treatment of space, and bold handling of ink and brush, while unmistakably Chinese, bring to mind similar characteristics in modern Western art."
