Chang Dai-chien (Zhang Daqian) is recognized as the 20th century's greatest innovator of Chinese painting, who lived in California for a decade. Chang's work was featured in the Asian Art Museum's first solo exhibition of the work of a living
artist in 1972, so the history of the museum and the artist are intertwined. The exhibition, Chang Dai-chien: Painting from Heart to Hand, that opens in November is the Asian Art Museum's second solo exhibition of works by the artist and features many works that the artist gifted to the institution.

The quest for spices brought the world together in ways that we only now recognize. Though spices have been in circulation since Antiquity, it really was roughly from the "Contact Age" forward (circa 1500 CE) that they began to play a vital role in connecting the world's scattered societies. Prior to that, the Mediterranean Basin and India were thinly connected by spices; further to the east, India and Southeast Asia as well, as were Southeast Asia and China further east.
