    About

    A branch of white magnolia flowers reaches into the picture plane. The voluminous appearance and naturalism of the blossoms are achieved by fine colour gradations and the spare use of outlines combined with embossing (gauffrage). Red prunus complements the colour scheme of white, green and blue. Two bees and a poetic inscription fill the upper left corner. The poem compares the white of the magnolia with moonlit jade and its fragrance with that of an orchid. The subject matter, the composition and the elegant calligraphy resemble paintings in album format by Yun Shouping (1633--1690). Yun initiated a new style in subtle, natural colour washes without outlines (mogu) which became very popular in the area around Suzhou. Like the Ding print workshops, Yun had members of his family working for him in his studio. However, paintings produced by this studio were more subtle in colour and certainly more costly than prints that emulate his style.
