Straddling East and West: Lin Yutang, A Modern Literatus
Liu, Shi-yee, and edited by Maxwell K. Hearn (2007)
This title is out of print.

In the winter of 2005 the Department of Asian Art received an important group of gifts and promised gifts from the family of the noted author Lin Yutang (1895–1976). Consisting of forty-three modern Chinese paintings, calligraphies, and prints, this donation, together with the earlier gift of nineteenth- and twentieth-century paintings from Robert H. Ellsworth, significantly enhances the Museum's ability to present China's traditional literati arts of the mid-twentieth-century.
