Profile:
Fang Jiong, born in 1941, Wenzhou, Zhejiang Province. He is from a literary family, with his grandfather being the teacher of his own old-style private school, and his father a famous calligrapher and painter. Fang Jiong held two art exhibitions in Shanghai in the 1940s, and Zhang Daqian wrote a longish recommendation for his exhibitions.
