A question about a mural supposedly painted by a man from China at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts.

I visited the Minneapolis Institute of Arts last December. One of the period reproduction rooms included a chinoiserie-type mural. As far as I can remember, the detail said that a pastor (?) brought a man from China to paint the mural authentically. I had taken notes then which I have since lost. I have been trying to confirm the existence of this mural, and the details of it online, but am having no luck! I think I do not quite have the right search terms for google or the institute's site. Help me find out more about it please!
