Chao Mêng-fu
Chinese Yüan Dynasty painter and calligrapher
Chinese, (1254–1322)
Chao Meng-fu (1254-1322) was known as Tzu-ang (his style name) as well as Sung-hsueh tao-jen. A painter and calligrapher of the Yüan dynasty, Chao was court painter to the Mongol Emperor Khubilai Khan and held other high government posts, including the presidency of the Han-in Academy. His animal paintings were done in a conservative, realistic style, whereas his landscapes and studies of bamboo show a more original approach that emphasizes rapid, expressive, yet highly disciplined calligraphic brush strokes.
