Wen Cheng-ming : Old Trees by a Cold Stream
Wen Cheng-ming (1470-1559) was a native of Ch'ang-chou (Soochow). His original name was Pi and his style name was Cheng-ming, by which he became known later, and thus he assumed another style name Cheng-chung. His sobriquets were Heng-shan and T'ing-yun-sheng. He studied painting under Shen Chou and brought the Wu school literati painting to its perfection. This piece, produced when he was eighty, is a rare example among Wen Cheng-ming's works that is depicted in rough brushwork on a large silk artwork plane.
