Ashida ( The Sixty-Nine Stations of the Kisokaido series)

Yun Shouping (1633-1690) - Lotus Flower Breaking the Surface

"Yun’s style was vibrant and expressive; he attempted to display the inner vitality and spirit of his subjects in painting. […] He was unafraid of using strong colors, such as reds and purples, which had traditionally been shunned by Chinese painters as they were seen as gaudy and offensive. He revived the genre of flower paintings in China and became popular throughout the country." [x]

Lang Shining (Giuseppe Castiglione) (1688-1766) - Empress Xiao Xian
