Zha Shibiao 查士標

(Chinese, 1615–1698)

Album of twelve leaves, ink or ink and light color on paper

Overall: 29.9 x 39.4 cm (11 3/4 x 15 1/2 in.)

Gift of Mr. and Mrs. Severance A. Millikin 1955.37



Zha Shibiao, a native of Anhui province, moved to Yangzhou later in his career, like so many of his fellow countrymen. At age 68, he painted this album with seasonal landscapes in various styles. Painted in fresh colors and wet strokes, all depict typical scenes of Jiangnan, the Yangzi delta: a herdboy on a buffalo wading through water, boating on the stream to the Peach Blossom Spring at Wulin, a waterfront town shrouded in mist, a scholar on his donkey enjoying the red autumn leaves, and drinking tea on a boat while watching migrating birds.
