    Although undated, this fan was likely painted by Qi Baishi in his early years. His use of the Azhi seal is one indication and his figural depictions after his seventies are scarce. With a minimum of brushstrokes, Qi Baishi's depiction of the Daoist immortal Li Tieguai recalls the quick expressive approach of the Song and Yuan dynasty Chan Buddhist painters as interpreted by 18th century Yangzhou eccentric artists Jin Nong (1687-1763) and Luo Pin (1733–1799).
