The ink painting Young Woman (少妇) was created with varied short lines in light ink, without too much consideration on the details. The artist Wu Shanming depicted a young woman who is elegant and beautiful, quiet and pristine. The white space leaves an impression of solitude, emptiness and boundless. Being the descendants of Zhe School Figure Painting, Wu Shanming promoted ink figure painting of freehand brushwork to a higher level, thus enriching the teaching system of Zhe School Figure Painting.
