Unknown Ming-era artist
This painting is one of a series (now housed in the Palace Museum of Beijing) which portrays the career of the
Ming-dynasty era Chinese official Xu Xianqing. Xu was a native of Yixing (west of Lake Tai). He received his jinshi
degree in 1568 and eventually became Vice-Minister of Personnel. His year of birth is unknown, although it is
known that he died in 1602.
Date: 16th or early 17th century, late Ming Dynasty
