  1. The female on the left of the picture was Fang Zhaoling (1914-2006), who was the student of Chang since 1953. This picture was probably taken on 1970.

    In 1970 Chang invited Fang to stay with him for studying the Chang's painting philosophy and helping Chang's daily routine. Fang stayed for the whole year in 1970 and this picture was taken during that period.
