Late esteemed scholar and collector Rong Geng once taught for years at the Sun Yat-Sen University in Guangzhou where his academic depth has nurtured generations of scholars of ancient Chinese writings including Chen Yingjie.

Chen, who graduated from Sun Yat-Sen and is now a professor of Capital Normal University in Beijing, recently gave a speech at the National Art Museum of China in Beijing, sharing details of the life and work of Rong.

The talk was held on the sidelines of Mr. Rong's Great World, an exhibition at the National Art Museum of China until Dec 7. It shows Rong's artworks and his former collections of antiquity, which are now housed at public museums, reflecting his academic achievements and generosity to share his love with the public.
