Bamboo, Zhengxing (bijnaam Wuzhai), c. 1675 - c. 1750

ink on paper, h 140.9cm × w 72.4cm. More details

These four hanging scrolls are examples of Chinese bamboo painting. Central to this genre is mastery of the brush. The bamboo stem segments as well as the individual leaves are all rendered with just a single brushstroke. The artist worked fairly wet and, in addition to grey tints, made ample use of an undiluted deep black ink to create an atmosphere of lush and moist vegetation.
