Description

Label:

SIGNATURE:
Shao-an.

Chao Shao-an was trained in the Lingnan school of painting in southern China. One of the most consistent and easily recognizable aspects of this painting style is the repeated application of ink and color washes to the background, creating an atmospheric effect. The effect is often found in landscape scenes to give a sense of space and depth. Here the tinted washes of the background provide a nice contrast to the dark outlines of the rabbit, making him stand out and appear more lifelike.
