Thank you.

Is this person the same?

Mr. K. Yung (1894-1983), formally named Zhaogeng, style name Xibai, pseudonyms Rong Zhai and Song Zhai, was born in Dongguan of the Guangdong Province. He was a famous paleographer and cultural relics connoisseur. He successively held teaching positions at Yanching University , Peking University, Lingnan University and Sun Yan-sen University. He also served as a member of the Antique Appraisal Committee of the Antique Institute in the Palace Museum, member of the Guangdong Provincial Cultural Relics Management Committee, and member of the National Committee of CPPCC.

In his late years, he donated all his collections, including Chinese paintings and calligraphies, letters by celebrities, books, to the nation. Receiving the largest number of collections by Mr. K. Yung, Guangzhou Museum of Art presents in this year the Special Exhibitions of Paintings and Calligraphies Donated by Mr. K. Yung, aiming at reorganizing the paintings and calligraphies donated by him through the exhibition catalogue. We selected more than five hundred works from more than one thousand pieces donated by him which are now in the museum's collection.
