Wang Fu : A Gathering of Literati in a Mountain Bower
Wang Fu (1362-1416) was a native of Wu-hsi, Kiangsu province. His style name was Meng-tuan, and his sobriquets were Yu-shih and Chiu-lung shan-jen. He held high principles and shunned mundanity by nature, was gifted in poetry and prose, and was talented in calligraphy and painting. He first won fame as a painter of bamboo and rocks following the manner of Ni Tsan, but later studied the style of Wang Meng and established a unique demeanor in landscape painting. This work, in which opulent brushstrokes depict a gathering of men of noble character in a mountain bower, is a masterpiece produced when he was forty-three.
