Though he had intended to bequeath the collection to the nation, the Depression of the 1930s forced him instead to sell it to the nation at a preferential rate. The paintings include 'Feeding Horses' by Jen Jen-fa (Yuan Dynasty, 1260-1368 and illustrated). The paintings are part of a wider collection of 134 paintings and the others were purchased by the British Museum.
