Why this is a
Masterpiece

The style, calligraphy, and painting suggest to date the artwork to circa 1555. With the help of monochrome and dotted lines, Wen Zhengming evokes the essence of landscape. Between the solitary man and the interior of the shelter surrounded by vegetation, there is a visual and psychological link which gives some unity to the landscape.

History of the Object
Before being bought by the museum, the fan was in a western private collection.
