Description
T: Tzu-chü
Shen Shih-ch'ung was from Hua-t'ing, Chiangsu province, and was a pupil of first Sung Mou-chin and later Chao Tso, who became one of the most famous Yün-chien school artists. The artists of this tradition painted landscapes with an atmospheric quality and frequently their paintings take on a slightly hazy look.
This school's first master was Sung Hsü, whose work is also shown here. Historically the Yün-chien (the old name of the region of Sung-chiang) school was held in contrast to the Hua-t'ing (named for the county and city) school, whose major exponent was the theoritican and painter Tung Ch'i-chang. Shen displays the typical Yün-chien school flare for beautiful and expert brushwork, particularly in the handling of the autumn trees and densely textured rocks.
