Description
Shen Shih was from Suchou but had also lived in Nanking. He studied the Sung and Yüan masters as well as the professional artists T'ang Yin and Ch'iu Ying and is said to have copied old paintings. Only a few works carry his own signature.
In this autumn landscape we see more of the influence of the Wu school master Wen Cheng-ming. Shen Shih's light and deft brushwork are reminiscent of other better-known painters like Shen Chou. The two poetic inscriptions on the top right of this work are by Wen Po-jen (nephew of Wen Cheng-ming, whose work is in the exhibition) and another Shen Shih. The artist Shen Shih indicates it was painted for Mr. Chu-lin of Nanking.
