to see some of this side of the country’s best Chinese landscape paintings. James Cahill, retired from UC Berkeley after three decades of teaching Chinese art history, was known for bringing examples of his own collection into the classroom. This gorgeous show of paintings, curated by former students, makes a case for abandoning the slide carousel and getting straight to the goods. Closes May 26.
