In the early 1930s Sirén began to direct his attention more and more to Chinese painting. He was writing an overall history of the development of painting in China and also translating the texts of Chinese paintings. His fourth voyage took place in 1935 which includes his visit to South East Asia. While he was in China, he stayed mostly in Beijing and Shanghai, focusing on enlarging the painting collection for the Nationalmuseum.
