顾恺之 Gu Kaizhi
Gu Kaizhi (simplified Chinese: 顾恺之; traditional Chinese: 顧愷之; pinyin: Gù Kǎizhī; Wade–Giles: Ku K'ai-chih) (c. 344-406), is a celebrated painter of ancient China. His style name was 'Changkang' (长康).[1] He was born in Wuxi, Jiangsu province and first painted at Nanjing in 364. In 366, he became an officer (Da Sima Canjun, 大司馬參軍). Later he was promoted to royal officer (Sanji Changshi, 散騎常侍). He was also a talented poet and calligrapher. He wrote three books about painting theory: On Painting (畫論), Introduction of Famous Paintings of Wei and Jin Dynasties (魏晉勝流畫贊) and Painting Yuntai Mountain (畫雲台山記). He wrote: "In figure paintings the clothes and the appearances were not very important. The eyes were the spirit and the decisive factor."[1]

Gu's art is known today through copies of several silk handscroll paintings attributed to him.

神情诗 Spirit of the Four Seasons

Author: -- 顾恺之 Gu Kaizhi
春水满泗洋,
Spring water overbrims the streams;
夏云多奇峰。
Summer cloud fancy peaks outshines;
秋月扬明辉,
The autumn moon sheds brilliant beams;
冬岭秀孤松。
On winter cliffs stand cold-proof pines.
