沙馥 仕女 水墨紙本 立軸 一八九九年
Sha Fu studied painting with Ren Xiong (1823-1857) and was a prominent painter in the blossoming Shanghai school during the second half of the 19th century. His inclusion in the upper echelons of Shanghai painting circles is evinced by his inclusion in Hudieqiu Zhai suocang huace published in 1879, and that his portrait was painted by Ren Yi (1840-1896) on several occasions. See Steven Little, ed. New Songs on Ancient Tunes Honolulu, 2007. pp. 282-283
