Description
T: Yuän-chao
H: Hsiang-pi, Lien-chou, Jan-hsiang an-chu
From T'ai-ts'ang, Chiangsu
The second of the "Four Wangs," and one of the "Nine Friends in Painting," Wang Chien came from a family dedicated to learning and painting. He was a follower of Tung Ch'i-chang and copied from the Yüan masters, developing a conservative approach to landscape composition. He was for a time governor of Lien-chou, Kuangtung province but was more interested in painting than politics and retired from public life.
