Zhang Xuan painter post


Despite WordPress assigning this post the ID of 1173, this is post 755. It caught my attention because the year 755 was when Zhāng Xuān (張萱) was born, the famous Chinese painter. I remember him really well because of a print we had in our lounge room when I was growing up in Australia, and it just so happens Wikipedia has a picture of it:

Spring Outing of the Tang Court

Not exactly my cup of tea nowadays, but seeing it was a real nostalgia trip for me.

Does this post count as a pointless Rubenerd Blog milestone?
