Nestorian Christians went there in the 7th century, out very little art remains from their efforts. Jesuit missionaries arrived there to stay at the end of the 16th century. But it wasn't until after the first World War that Christian Chinese art flourished under tuc Tcheng, the professor of art at the Catholic University erf Pekin. luke Chen, who did the painting of "The Flight Into Egypt", from which the above drawing was done, was one of a nurriber of Chinese Christian artists to come out of the school in Pekin. He became a Christian while doing a series of paintings for Archbishop Sostantmi. first Apostolic delegate to China. The Archbishop was impressed with the beautiful poetic paintings of the New Testament in the Chinese tradition. Concerning his work, Luke Chen wrote: "I believe that when I paint the wonders of Christianity according to the ancient rules of Chinese art, the painted object exerts an externally new and strange effect . . . and by such means draws the Chinese to know God." It is to be devoutly wished that the influence of the prolific Luke Chen will not b« completely lost in that country covered by the red mantle of communism.
