It made me real sad; I cried and cannot stop. I tried to call you until 5 p.m. but couldn't get through, so I decided to write you a few words asking you not be too grieved to hurt your health for the sake of your students and the sake of the art, please. Pan Chang Yuliang. 5-24, 6 p.m."

Description: PAN YULIANG (CHINESE, 1895-1977) LETTER TO WANG JIYUAN. 1971 Ink on paper: One creased paper written front and back in pen with envelope; Sent from Paris, France, June 13 1971; "To my teacher Jiyuan, I saw your exhibition catalogue. I know more than ten pieces sold on the opening date. Congratulations! I am taking Chinese medicine every day. It seems to work, so don't worry about me..Yesterday the director of Asian Art Museum from Paris came to invite me to have a solo show at their place at the beginning of next year. I accepted. I already had a bronze sculpture and oil painting of their past director but they asked to include all my work from 1937 to present. So would you have your student pack all my works left at your place and handed to Mr. Ma...Have you seen Mr. Da-Chien lately? He must be recovered well from his eye operation. I had the picture on the wall which had both you and Mr. Da-Chien together. It makes me happy when I look at it every day...Talk to you next time, Pan Chang Yuliang, 6-18-71".

I just received your letter dated 10-14 and thank you for your kind forgiveness...Since 1970 I have been exhibited three times but they were all old works. I have been ill for many years..it's not just the medicines but I cannot hold the brush that has most unfortunately obstructed my painting..I have a hernia problem and in France there is no medicine for a cure, just an operation, but I am too old for that. I decided to rest at home and postpone my solo to 1973 the year after. What a pity!
