    Nagao Uzan (Jia Changwei, 1864-1942), was a Kansai-based sinologist, whose specialty was Chinese paintings and calligraphy. Nagao worked for Shanghai Shangwu Yinshuguan (The Commercial Press) in 1903-1914 and was one of the founding Japanese members of the Xiling Yinshe. While in China he befriended Wu Changshuo and Zheng Xiaoxu, and later supported exhibitions of Wang Zhen in Japan. Returning to Japan, Nagao authored books of Chinese art and also brokered the sale of paintings from Luo Zhenyu's collection when Luo was residing in Kyoto. Nagao's own collection is currently at the Kyoto National Museum. See Hong Zaixin, "Chinese art collecting and the Japanese market" in Joshua Fogel ed. The Role of Japan in Modern Chinese Art, Berkeley, 2013.
