Wang Shixiang (May 25, 1914 – November 28, 2009) was a Chinese researcher of traditional Chinese culture, leading art collector, poet, and Chinese character calligrapher. He attended first the American School in Beijing and the Yanjing University (later to become Beijing University). Wang finished his postgraduate research on the aesthetic theory of Chinese painting in 1943 and traveled to Lizhuang to join the Society for Research in Chinese Architecture. Following the defeat of Japan in 1945, he was comissioned by the Chinese Government to retrieve the many national treasures that had been looted during the occupation. Wang fulfilled the task so well that he was regarded with a position in the Palace Museum and in 1948 he won a one-year Rockefeller Scholarship to the United States and Canada. He published several books on ‘minor Chinese arts’, such as pigeons, decorative gourds, bamboo carving, crickets, etc.
