Qian Songyan (1899-1986) was an ink artist who mastered the skills of landscape painting. In Qian’s early works that imitate antique paintings, light and elegant colors were used. The importance of both color and ink was highlighted.

Qian’s innovative ability to handle color is effectively demonstrated in this landscape painting, created in 1941. It presents both his brushwork and masterful use of color, with a contrast between light crimson and green.
