Description

This set of fan paintings expresses the artist’s personal life and differs from the state-commissioned works Fu painted to fulfill his social duty. Here, several of the paintings have dedicatory inscriptions to Fu’s wife, Luo Shihui, and his eldest daughter, Yishan. Not only do these inscriptions offer glimpses into the artist’s private life, they also reveal acutely felt emotions, especially the struggle of a loving father deeply troubled by a daughter’s illness.
