These album leaves, all showing river landscapes, are good examples of his work, and represent the eclecticism of early Ch'ing painting. The Ashmolean has a fine collection of 19th and 20th-century Chinese painting, and is anxious to extend it to the 17th and 18th centuries. This was a rare opportunity to acquire work by this painter, which is well represented in museums but seldom appears on the market.
Ch'a Shih-piao, from Haiyang, Anhui province.
