Sirén’s was influenced by Theosophical ideas and he had applied Morellian Style Connoisseurship to Chinese paintings. Sirén’s approach in connoisseurship was vague and subjective, and is now outmoded. Scholars of Chinese Painting are interested in other approaches. The chapter also summarizes Sirén’s view on Yuan dynasty paintings, his life’s works on sculptures and architecture, and explains his roles as an art historian, a curator, a collector, an advisor and occasionally a dealer.
