Ink Painting of Horses

Attributed to Xinluo Shannen

Republican Period

Size: Width 39.5cm Height 103.5cm

from a California Estate of Chinese arts.

Xinluo Shanren is one of the few noted Chinese arts active during the Qianlong Era. However, the work comes from a period much later than the artist's period but is evidence that shows where generations of Chinese artists used their preferred masters to copy and at times contemplate if the artist would do such compositions.
