Yao Yuan was active/lived in China. Yao Yuan is known for Scroll Painting.
Yuan Yao was a professional painter in Yangzhou who worked in and continued the style of the studio of the popular painter Yuan Jiang (active ca. 1680-1730). Catering to the preferences of the city’s wealthy merchants who sought massive hanging scrolls and screens to fill their mansions, the Yuans created fantastic landscapes of precisely painted grand residences, using the ruled-line technique, set in dramatic mountains with swirling mist. These magical vistas at once evoked imperial palaces of past dynasties and legendary realms of immortals.
