  • Zhang Pengchong received the jinshi degree in 1727, joining the Hanlin Academy during the early Qianlong period. His painting and calligraphy were influenced by Su Shi (1037-1101). Six of his works were included in the Shiqu Baoji, the Qianlong emperor's publication of the imperial painting collection. For another example of his painting see Heritage of the Brush, the Roy and Marylin Papp Collection of Chinese Painting, Phoenix Art Museum, 1989. pp. 82-83.

    聖主亟求賢,京師聚羣彥
    君家名父子,素業窮經轉,
    隱君耿介入,垂髦不釋卷,
    徴士擅通識,特受知己蔫,
    羅珎偶見遺,懷玉肯自炫,
    春風動歸思,久積晨昏戀,
    及此中夏時,帣鞲奉歡讌,
    義養有餘餘,榮高才豈終,
    賤為我謝老,翁峨冠,重相見。
