1. One of my mother’s favourite Chinese painters, 齊白石 Qi Baishi (1864-1957) is well known for his experimental, spontaneous brush strokes, and playful style depicting birds, fish, insects, plants, vegetables, and especially of shrimp. Originally from Hunan and settling in Beijing in 1917, he trained as a woodcarver and became a master in this discipline before turning to painting later in life. One of his major influences was painter 八大山人 Bada Shanren of the early Qing Dynasty. Qi had great influence over the evolution of modern Chinese art.
