Mi Fu, a scholar, poet, calligrapher, and painter in the Northern Song dynasty (960–1127) was a dominant figure in Chinese art, known for his use of “splashed ink,” a technique of moist washes and horizontal texture strokes used to create a vivid impression of rainy and cloud-clad Chinese landscapes. The style of Mi Fu attracted enthusiastic contemporary attention and remained a compelling influence throughout the history of Chinese painting.Zhang Qia was a descendant of Zhang Zongcang (1686–1756), an imperial court artist whose style resonated with the inheritors of the Orthodox tradition established by the Four Wangs. Following the orthodox approach, the painter here demonstrates his deep understanding of a past master’s style.
