Pavilions in the Deep Mountains
Ch’iu Ying, Ming Dynasty
Hanging scroll, ink and color on paper, 110.5 x 42.1 cm
Ch’iu Ying (1494?-1552?), a native of the Shanghai region, flourished near Soochow. His style name was Shih-fu, his sobriquet Shih-chou. Born of humble origins, he was discovered by Chou Chen, and although originally a lacquer artisan, he received the adulation of the literati and is considered one of the Four Masters of the Ming Dynasty.
There are two paintings with this composition, both of wich are kept in the National Palace Museum (Taibei). The other scroll is entitled “Mansion of the Immortals among Clouds and Streams”. Except fro fewer complexities in the cloud-laden mountains, the rest of the composition is about the same. Ch’iu Ying did not date most of his paintings, but by using the date of Lu Shih-tao’s “Ode on the Mountains of the Immortals”, we know this is later by two years. The brushwork of this painting is more refined. The detail on the pavilion is as fine as a strand of hair, though the painting was executed on unsized paper: such skill was beyond the power of others. The scroll is signed: “Painted by Chi’iu Ying Shih-fu”, and above the painting is the “Ode on the Mountains of the Immortals” by Lu Shih-tao written in standard script.
明 仇英 仙山樓閣圖 軸 本幅紙本 設色畫 縱118公分 橫 41.5公分 仇英，生卒年不詳。作品見於正德已巳至嘉靖任子間(1509─1552)垂四十餘年。太昌人，字實父，號十洲，曾作漆工，其師周臣異而教之，後逐成名。山水學周臣，唐寅而別具一格。仕女界畫纖麗精巧，惟妙惟肖。仇英的畫多是細筆描寫，作風謹嚴。但謹嚴工細之中，更有一種從容不迫的意態。為明四大家之ㄧ。 此圖一稿兩本，皆存本院，另幅題名雲溪仙館，惟雲山少有繁簡，餘皆略同。仇畫多不紀年，以陸師道仙山賦紀年推之，此幅較後兩年，筆力亦更精至。樓台筆畫細如髮縷，用生紙畫成，他人無此功力也。
