Footnotes

  • Tao Tao was a native of Suzhou but was active in Shanghai with the majority of his dated works from the last decades of the nineteenth century. Originally inspired by Dong Qichang (1555-1636), his later landscapes are influenced by the Four Rens. For a biography see Steven Little, ed. New Songs on Ancient Tunes, Honolulu, 2007.

    註﹕陶焘(清)字诒孙。江苏苏州人。善画山水,学董其昌,苍莽浑厚,不落花流水恒蹊。笔意峭拔,皴法疏简,焦墨苍古,别有意趣。又能画松鹤,极古健。
