Offered here are selected images from the Jeannette Shambaugh Elliott collection of Chinese calligraphy together with research by art history graduate students at Arizona State University. Students involved in the project were Ming Hua, Nicholas Klofkorn, and Momoko Soma Welch. Jeannette Shambaugh Elliott studied Chinese art throughout her life and collected Chinese paintings and calligraphies from the 1960s until the 1990s. Portions of her collection reside at the Princeton University Art Museum, the Smart Museum of Art at the University of Chicago, and the Phoenix Art Museum. In 1985, some of the paintings at the Phoenix Art Museum were published in The Modern Spirit in Chinese Painting: Selections from the Jeannette Shambaugh Elliott Collection. With David Shambaugh, she published The Odyssey of China's Imperial Art Treasures (Seattle, 2005). This is a collaboration between ASU Libraries, the Phoenix Art Museum, and ASU Institute for Humanities Research.
