Dr. Louise Yuhas is currently Professor of Art History and Asian Studies at Occidental College in Los Angeles. Her research interests include Chinese landscape painting of the Ming Dynasty, especially topographical and travel paintings by literati artists of 16th century Suzhou, and, more recently, imperial patronage under Qianlong of the Qing Dynasty, including imperial gardens in Beijing and Chengde. Through the latter she is expanding into Sino-Tibetan religious art and to regional styles of Buddhist art on the Silk Road. She received her PhD in History of Asian Art at the University of Michigan, and has published articles in Ars Orientalis, Orientations, the National Palace Museum Bulletin, and Artists and Patrons: Some Social and Economic Aspects of Chinese Painting.
