Yun Shouping 恽寿平

1633-1690 China/Early Qing Dynasty

 

Brief Biography-Yun Shouping was born in Wujin, Jiangsu, in 1633. He belonged to the early Qing Dynasty, and along with the Four Wangs, was inspired by Dong Qichang, the art theorist, calligrapher and painter of the late Ming Dynasty. His contemporary Wang Hui, whom he was a friend of, influenced him to change from landscape painting to bird-and-flower paintings, including fish and insects. Shouping subsequently impressed later artists. His manner of mogu painting, or boneless style, refers to using washes instead of rigid outlines.
