Amy Shumei Huang specializes in Chinese art with a focus on paintings, prints, and collecting practices of the Ming and Qing Dynasties. She is currently working on a book-length project on 17th-century landscape images of Nanjing, which explores the issues of site-specificity, representation of time, and portrayal of historic sites as visual mode of memory.

Her research has been supported by the Henry Luce Foundation and she was Jane and Morgan Whitney Fellow at the Metropolitan Museum of Art (2016/17). She has published articles in journals in the US, China, and Taiwan—including the Journal of the American Oriental Society, Arts of Asia, National Palace Museum Bulletin, and National Palace Museum Quarterly. Huang offers introductory classes in Asian art and Chinese art, as well as seminars on Chinese paintings and prints, landscape art, and gardens.
