About General Wang
General Wang Huaiqing was one of the commanders of Pei-yang Clique, a dominant military force during the Republic of China. He suppressed and quelled various uprisings and rebellions with Yuan Shih-K'ai, including the uprising at outer Mongolia, and he was eventually appointed as the commander-in-chief of Beijing. During his military career, he played a key part in pushing further the development of the history of China, he releasing Feng Yuxiang and returned the administration right of Summer Palace back to the imperial families of the Qing Dynasty.
In 1924, the division of General Wang Huaiqing suffered its defeat in the second Zhifeng War, so he lost command of the army and its jurisdiction over Beijing. As a result, he was forced to leave his residence in Beijing and move to Tianjin in 1926. On the other hand, General Wang Huaiqing was an enthusiastic art collector. He was not able to carry all his collections during his migration to Tianjin. So he had no choice but to give part of the collection to his cousin, Wang Huaitang, who lived in Beijing. In the late 1960s, Wang Huaitang and his family moved to Hong Kong and ended up settling down in the United States in the 1970s.
