These four paintings pursue a simple approach on their structure and have a consistent style. With the ingenious and unique capture of scenes, the paintings show great detail in close-up items and leave much imagination to the viewer in long-range landscapes. Elegant and refined, with mellow and full brushstrokes, the four works of art uses the Book of Songs to convey the author’s frame of mind. Using a special method named “leech strokes” to draw ceases of cloth, the poetic side is exposed. One can try to imitate the subtle and delicate style, but to no avail: this is truly a rare jewel in South Song art. This collection is one of many from the series on the Book of Songs. The four paintings reflect the songs BOZHOU, QIANG YOU CI, SANG ZHONG and CHUN ZHI BEN EBN from the ten song collection Mao Poems: Odes of Yong. Each work has a caption written in “xiaoli” font. On the title page of the collection Zhang Ying of the Qing Dynasty penned a poem for Liang Qingbiao. At the back comments were made by Zhang Ying in September 14th, 1677.
