Footnotes

  • Jiang Pu was the son of the famous painter and Yongzheng court official Jiang Tingxi (1669-1732). In 1730 Jiang Pu was awarded the jinshi degree. He was posted as governor of Hunan province and later promoted to assistant grand secretary while also president of the Board of Civil Office. As a high official in the Qing court, Jiang Pu presented the Qianlong emperor with an early handscroll illustrating Sericulture (now in the collection of the Freer Gallery of Art, Washington D.C.), inscribing the scroll with an offertory preface to the emperor. After his death the emperor canonized him as Wenke.

    Jiang Pu's extent works show a broad range of technique and a skillful handling of the brush. Whereas many of his paintings show similarities to the meticulous brushwork seen in his father's paintings, this album exudes spontaneity, with many of the leaves expressing a deliberate sense of humor and whimsy.
