Why this is a
Masterpiece

Bian Shoumin is sometimes regarded as one of the Eight Eccentrics of Yangzhou (Yangzhou Baguai) in the history of Chinese painting. Active from the late 17th to the early 19th centuries, this heterogeneous group of artists was labelled Eccentrics as they deviated from the Orthodox mode of painting. The use of this term first appeared in 1873 but it excluded Bian Shoumin. This album also contains an an important inscription by a later artist, Xu Beihong. This adds value to the provenance of this piece of work. It is a masterwork in terms of its artistic qualities, dating and provenance. It betrays the style typical of the Yangzhou school and is one of the finer pieces executed by Bian Shoumin.

History of the Object
This album contains an important inscription by Xu Beihong, the 20th century artist, who expoused the beauty and artistic sophistication of the work. The work was later acquired by Dr. Tan Tsze Chor, a famous collector of Chinese paintings and calligraphy in Southeast Asia.
