Liu Tunan,
Landscape with a Man with a Walking Stick and an Attendant, n. d.
Paint on Silk


Object Type: Scroll
Technique: Brushwork
Creation Place: Asia, China
Credit Line: Gift of Dr. William Bacon Pettus
Accession Number: PE13


Commentary
Inscription, signature and date by the artist. “Horizontal clouds outside of the mountain peaks, a thousand layers of trees; amid the sound of flowing water, one or two households. Tthe fifteenth day of the ninth month of autumn in the wuzi year (1888), Liu Tunan of Maoling.”

This is a very well-executed, large scale work with marvelous detail by a minor painter of the eighteenth century. Since its style is in the tradition of the late Ming artist Lan Ying, it also relates to the conserved painting XX.1.14, which is attributed to that artist.

Liu Tunan was a minor calligrapher and painter from Sichuan Province who lived during the end of the 19th century. This painting was thus a new contemporary work when purchased and thus is undoubtedly genuine.
