Wang Weng: Lin-wu Grotto at Chu-chu

Yuan Dynasty / hanging scroll / color on paper

Wang Meng (1308-1385) was a native of Wu-hsing, Chekiang province. His style name was Shu-ming, and his sobriquets were Hsiang-kuang chu-shih and Huang-ho shan-ch'iao. He was the grandson of Chao Meng-fu on his mother's side. He was influenced by Chao Meng-fu's painting, but later studied T'ang and Sung painting to create a novel style and developed a unique composition in landscape painting Chu-ch'u refers to Lake T'ai. The work, in which the chieh-so ("unraveled rope") texture strokes said to be originated by him are freely used, is a masterpiece that is brimming with the atmosphere of the luxuriant yet simple, and the opulent yet trim.
