Landscape in the style of Wang Meng

Zhu Angzhi Chinese

Not on view

Zhu Angzhi inscribed this fan for the painter Shen Xuan, his contemporary, with one simple line: “After the brush-concept of Wang Meng’s [ca. 1308–1385] Clearing Dawn over Summer Mountains.” Had Zhu not written this, his friend would still have been able to identify the stylistic reference to the famous Yuan-dynasty painter thanks to the combination of two features: precarious leaning peaks and “hemp-fiber” strokes that provide a ropy texture. These elements were codified as essential to Wang Meng’s style as early as the Ming dynasty.
