Abstract

Tung Ch'i-ch'ang (1555-1636) advocated the Southern School Tung-Chu style over the Northern School associated with the Li-Kuo style. Thus, artists who chose to work in the Li-Kuo style often only did so only to complete their repertoire, but with a decidedly Southern School accent. Tung Ch'i-ch'ang, employing only monochrome ink, depicts mountains and boulders, trees and woods, streams and rivers, and cottages and slopes-all well placed in a landscape that is here piled into a composition of power and grandeur.
