The separately mounted former title slip and long final colophon represents an early work by the great Shanghai connoisseur Wu Hufan (1894-1968). The painting’s subject and its recipient c.1490 was Shen Tianyu, the son-in-law of the great Wu School painter Shen Zhou (1427-1509). In homage to a cultural hero, Du Jin paints the foliage in the style of Shen Zhou. London dealership Sydney L Moss will offer it for sale at $1.5m.
