Fu Baoshi strongly identified with the artist Shitao (1642–1707). In wartime Chongqing, Fu came to terms with economic hardship by likening his living environment to that of Shitao’s “humble cottage.” But it was Shitao’s innovative artistic spirit that inspired Fu in his quest for self-expression in painting.
