Chen Hongshou (1598 - 1652) was an ancient Chinese painter who is celebrated for his print paintings and illustrations of books. He is also noted for his curious, masterfully executed paintings of ancient personalities. His works suggest the disquiet of the artist caught between the decline of the Ming dynasty and the conquest of the foreign Manchus, who established the Qing dynasty.
