Marlborough Fine Art London has been engaged with China for many years. It was one of the first galleries to show contemporary Chinese art in Europe, and in 1953 the gallery opened a show in London entitled Chinese Paintings by Professor Chao Shao-An and his pupil Lydia Chao Ling-Fang. This began a lasting connection between the gallery and the art of China, and in 1993 the gallery opened the pioneering New Art from China: Post 1989, which showcased the work of 22 Chinese artists. This was the first time that artists such as Fang Lijun and Zeng Fanzhi were shown in Europe. In 1995 Chen Yifei (1946 2005), one of Chinas most admired artists, joined the gallery, which was responsible for the staging of The Homecoming of Chen Yifei retrospective exhibition. This show toured from the Shanghai Museum in 1996 to the China National Museum of Fine Arts, Beijing in 1997. Marlborough Fine Art also went on to organise Yifeis XLVII Venice Biennale exhibition in 1997.
