The Museum is undertaking the updating and expansion of information about the Chinese prints and paintings in the collection by improving the entries on the collection online database.

This work is sometimes carried out in conjunction with producing exhibitions and catalogues, including The printed image in China: from the eighth to the twenty-first centuries (2010) and Modern Chinese ink paintings: a century of new directions (2012), both by curator Clarissa von Spee.
