Shih-t'ao and Wang Yuan-ch'I : Bamboo and Orchids
Shih-t'ao (1642-1707), Yuan-chi by religious name, and Ta-ti-tzu and K'u-kua ho-shang by sobriquets, was a member of the Ming imperial household by birth. He was an early Ch'ing dynasty painter who is becoming more highly evaluated over the years. This collaboration with Wang Yuan-ch'i (1642-1715), Mao-ching by style name and Lu-t'ai by sobriquet, is a consummate work indicating the preeminence of both artists. Shih-t'ao depicts the bamboo and orchids by artfully and freely using varying ink tonalities, and Wang Yuan-ch'i, the master of landscape painting, supplements the work by executing the ground and rocks in meticulous brushstrokes.
