The State

Chinese art prodigy Wang Yani, who first took up a paintbrush when she was 2 and had her own exhibitions at museums in China by age 6, gave her latest painting to the city of San Francisco. "Impressions of the Zoo," painted by the 14-year-old in the Chinese xieyi, or idea writing style, depicts a flock of flamingos she admired at the zoo. Exhibits of Wang Yani's work will be displayed in several U.S. cities during the next few months. The teen-ager from Guangxi province already has had exhibits in Britain, West Germany and Japan.
