Qiu Ying - Peach Village

Qiu Ying (ca.1494-1552) was a Chinese painter of the Ming Dynasty who specialized in the gongbi (meticulous) brush technique.

His talent and versatility allowed him to become regarded as one of the Four Great Masters of the Ming Dynasty, along with Shen Zhou (1427-1509), Wen Zhengming (1470-1559), and Tang Yin (ca. 1470-1523). Qiu Ying’s use of the brush was meticulous and refined, and his depictions of landscapes and figures were orderly and well-proportioned. In addition to his paintings being elegant and refined, they also are quite decorative.
