Biography   Mignonette Cheng


Obituary. Ann Arbor News, May 5, 2009

Family, colleagues recall skill of longtime University of Michigan painting professor Mignonette Yin Cheng

by Dave Gershman

Mignonette Yin Cheng didn't want to learn how to paint in the traditional Chinese way.
Born in China in 1933, she was sent to learn from a Chinese master by making meticulous copies of the artist's work.  The closer the copy, the better the student.

"After a year, the Chinese master told (her) mother Mignonette is unteachable because she wants to do her own thing," said her husband, Richard Cheng.

Cheng, 76, of Ann Arbor, died April 23.  She taught students for more than 30 years at the University of Michigan.
