Marilyn and Roy Papp built an important collection of Chinese paintings representing the past five hundred years. They formed the collection over past twenty-five years, ultimately selecting about two hundred works representing the highest artistic expression of China’s Ming and Qing dynasties.

This is a collaboration between ASU Libraries, the Phoenix Art Museum, The Papp Family, and ASU Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts.
