Why this is a
Masterpiece

This painting portrays six trees sitting on a slope, standing upright in the cold wind, poetically quiet and desolate. Signifying the independence and uprightness of one’s moral character, it is thus titled “Six Gentlemen.”

History of the Object
Ni Zan (1301 – 1374),(also known by his zi (designated name) Yuan Zhen, and by his three hao (literary names) Yuan Linzi, Huan Xiazi, and Jin Manmin, was a native of Wuxi, Jiangsu Province. Skilled at ink landscape paintings in the styles of Dong Yuan, Jing Hao and Guan Tong with a creative “folding-ribbon wrinkles” method to portray mountain rocks, he painted the trees in style of Li Cheng. Later generations referred to him, together with Huang Gongwang, Wu Zhen, and Wang Menghe as the “Four Masters of the Yuan Dynasty.”
