Wen T'ung: Ink Bamboo

Sung Dynasty / hanging scroll / ink on silk

Wen T'ung (1018-1079) was a native of Tzu-t'ung, Szechwan province. His style name was Yu-k'o, and his sobriquets were Chin-chiang tao-jen and Hsiao-hsiao hsien-sheng. He was talented in poetry, prose, calligraphy and painting, but excelled especially in painting. His ink bamboos executed in vigorous and refined brushstrokes were commented on their realism. This piece is a representative monumental work from the zenith of Wen T'ung's career. The painting, which is a marvelous depiction of the lively forms of the bamboo, exerted the greatest influence on later periods as the standard of its genre.
