  • Chinese Paintings in the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford by Shelagh Vainker

    Chinese Paintings in the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford

    The year of Wu Qingyun's birth is unknown, though his earliest dated work is from 1857. He was from Nanjing, but lived and worked mostly in Shanghai. He spent some time in Japan and is considered by some to have developed Western stylistic features in his paintings. This is evident more in his use of chiaroscuro, in which he may anwyay be indebted to the earlier Qing Nanjing painter Gong Xian, than in any use of perspective.
