Wang Yuanqi Chinese

Not on view

The youngest of the "Four Wangs," Wang Yuanqi knew both Wang Jian (1598–1677) and Wang Hui (1632–1717) and was tutored in painting by his grandfather Wang Shimin (1592–1680). Embarking on a career of government service at the age of twenty-nine, Wang gained official recognition as an artist in 1705, when he and four others were commanded by the Kangxi emperor (r. 1662–1722) to compile a comprehensive study on painting and calli-graphy, which was published in 1708 under the title Peiwenzhai shuhuapu. In this painting Wang draws inspiration from two Yuan dynasty masters, Huang Gongwang (1269–1354) and Gao Kegong (1248–1310).
