After the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Scripps has the second largest collection of Chinese painting in Los Angeles that is available to the public. Most of the Scripps collection of more than one hundred Chinese paintings dates from the Ming and Qing Dynasties (16th-19th centuries). Many of these landscape and figure paintings were given by William Bacon Pettus from the 1930s to the 1970s. These Chinese paintings are frequently displayed in on-campus exhibitions in conjunction with art history courses in Asian art.
