What kind of calligraphy and painting is it? From ancient times to the present, no one can surpass it, and is known as the god of painting and calligraphy!

Hello everyone, here is the blog of young Chinese calligraphy and painting teacher Lin Lan. Teacher Lin Lan is the pioneer of Chinese painting and calligraphy research, education and training. Lin Lan's calligraphy and painting education platform has cultivated many outstanding students, enthusiasts, teachers, and foreign students.  , Teacher Lin Lan’s original teaching method has won unanimous praise and recognition from all students.

Today we are going to introduce a figure known as a fairy in the painting and calligraphy circles. He is one of the few early-witted genius painters and masters of "painting and calligraphy" among the sea painters. 

He is a character, a lady, a green landscape, a double hook flower and bird, and a black dragon.  , Beasts, grasses and insects, ink plums, bamboos and stones, all can not be.  Among the masters of the nineteenth century, in terms of subject matter, only Ren Xiong, Ren Yu and his son, Wu Youru, Lu Hui, etc., can compare with them.

Most people's initial impression of his works is that the subject matter is popular and the colors are flashy, they are the representative of the standard maritime painting school.  

There are many reasons for this conclusion, the most important of which is that he has a large number of students and overflows with vulgar texts.   

But what everyone sees are mostly imitations or fakes, with lines that are oily and overly colored, making it difficult to climb into a clean and beautiful room, which is inconsistent with magnificent elegance.

Huangshan Shou: (1855-1919) formerly known as Yao, with the word Xuchu, named Xuchi Old Man, Lisheng, Hexi Yuyin, and Master of Yanyan Pavilion, born in Wujin (now Changzhou), Jiangsu.  Official Zhili Tongzhi.  

The handed down works include the axis of "Autumn Waterfall", now in the collection of the Shanghai Museum; the axis of "Imitating Zhao Mengfu's Blue and Green Landscapes" in the 29th year of Guangxu (1903), "Ink and Color Flower Atlas", and "Xuantong First Year (1909)  "Plum Blossom Picture" axis, 

recorded in "Chinese Calligraphy and Painter's Seals and Notes"; "Imitating Jiangguandao Rock Wall Loose Picture" and "Lesson Picture" are recorded in "Zhiyutang Calligraphy and Painting Records"; "Beauty Hanxiang Tu" banners are recorded in 1996 edition  "China Antique Market Expo".

Huang Shanshou, who was born five years in Xianfeng, Qing Dynasty, was born in a poor family. He was talented in painting at an early age. He devoted himself to copying the original works of his predecessors, Gaiqi, in painting and calligraphy.  

With the guidance of several famous artists, the teenager became famous.  Later came from Chengyi. In terms of the subject matter, he followed the popular route and was good at drawing pictures of "Antarctic birthday star" and "Grant promotion". The pictures were elegant and simple, both of them, full of joy, and many imitators.

His son Huang Rong also practiced the family law, but his skill and brushwork, color and ink are far away.  These poorly imitated works are far from Huang Shanshou's works in terms of painting method and state, in calligraphy and inscriptions. 

Huang Shanshou’s works from his teens to his twenties worked hard to learn from ancient times, specializing in ink and wash painting, abide by the ancient law in pen and ink coloring, and regard elegance as the sect, 

and there is absolutely no disease of glamour and vulgarity.  The ink is pure and the brush is proficient, everywhere showing that he is a precocious and talented painter.

His works when he was 30 years old, with his pens full of self-confidence, have the momentum of self-contained family.  His representative work of this period, "Dongpo Gushi Tu", is a hand scroll with ink and brush on silk, with the introductory title of Wang Chao by Jia Yin (10th year of Guangxu, 1884).  The landscape paintings of Huang Shanshou before 40 years old are rarely seen in the market.

From the age of 30 to 50, Huang Shanshou developed the subject matter of the characters and ladies more proficient and concise, reaching the realm of mutual appreciation between the refined and the popular.  

Huang Shanshou is one of the few painters who can write poetry inscriptions in the later period of the Shanghai School.  The five or seven-character quatrains he wrote are very rare, and they are stable in contrast, clear in rhetoric, and complementary to the painting.

Huang Shanshou’s masterpieces, from their twenties to their sixties, are all elegant, glamorous but not vulgar, beautiful but not picky, no matter whether it is ink wash or color.  Breath is another expert in color and ink after Gai Qi and Ren Xiong, who can compete with Wu Guxiang, and are the four great masters of color and ink in the late Qing Dynasty.

Zhang Mingke is the most extensive art lover and collector who interacted with calligraphers and painters in the mid-nineteenth century. His "Hansong Pavilion Talking about Art" records mostly first-hand information about his contacts with calligraphers, painters and collectors.  

It's best to interact with painters in his life, so he is rich in collections, and he has many authentic works of famous masters in the 19th century.

He listed Huang Shanshou after Gaiqi and Ren Xiong, who had the most unique artistic conception and the most superb painting skills in the late Qing Dynasty, 

and made them three, which shows his admiration for Huang Shanshou.  The three of them are all talented painters who are young and able to move the princes with their names.

 Later, he "visited Ningbo, Eastern Guangdong, and Jinmen, and his paintings were very famous."  The result of the travel was a huge increase in word-of-mouth, which was learned by the Qing court and summoned into the palace to give officials Zhili Tongzhi.  

For folk painters, this is equivalent to leaping over the dragon gate, and it is a matter of shining ancestors.  The main function of the court painter is to eulogize the royal family, so more portraits of the royal family and daily activities are drawn.

According to the descendants of the Huang family, Huang Shanshou painted portraits of Cixi and Guangxu.  The family tree of the Huang clan also records that before the 70th birthday of the Empress Dowager Cixi, Huangshan Shou painted 12 "Pictures of Fairy Blessings" and presented them as treasures in the Forbidden City.  

However, individuals under the current situation, even the Lord Jinluan cannot control their own destiny, although Huang Shanshou has always been "sincere in words and deeds and willing to do good."

In 1900, the Gengzi Rebellion broke out and Empress Dowager Cixi abandoned the city and fled.  In the chaos, Huang Shanshou, who had been favored by the royal family, also left the capital. 

Last year, Shanghai spent his old life selling paintings.Died in Shanghai in 1919, at the age of 65.

Statistics of auction data of Huang Shanshou's works in recent years: total "1919 pieces"; "45 pieces" in preview; "1092 pieces" of sold lots; "782 pieces" of unsold lots; total transaction amount of "49,253,590 yuan", transaction ratio 58%.
