This landscape was painted in the style of Zhan Jingfeng, a Ming Dynasty connoisseur. The original was destroyed in a fire, but through the immaculately reproduced work of Li, the style and form of the Ming painting have been recreated on paper, thanks to the artist's consummate skills in traditional brushwork and keen observation.

  • About the Artist: Li Yanshan was a native of Guangdong. He studied law at Peking University and worked in the government's legal office when he returned to Guangzhou. He joined the Chinese Painting Research Society in 1925, and helped to promote traditional Chinese painting. In 1932, he was appointed Head of the Guangzhou Municipal School of Fine Arts, and was keen to develop the Department of Chinese Painting. His artistic provenance was certainly rooted in the traditional schools.
