Chen Wang

Wang Chen was a direct descendant of Wang Shimin and Wang Yuanqi, who were the founders of the orthodox school of painting.  He passed his state examinations and held the office of prefect.

As an artist, he earned his renown thanks to his calligraphy.  His landscapes are in the spirit of the orthodox and quite conservative, yet, they are also technically excellent.
