Fan Zeng was born in 1938, now works in Nan Kai University in Tianjing. He is a member of the Chinese Artists?Association and famous artist with worldwide influence. Fan is expert in figure paintings and has distinct personal style. He likes to describe some famous people who had obvious characters to identify in ancient times. Although these figures are composed of a few strokes, they are very lifelike. And every stroke of the characters is boldly and forcefully laid. The set of ?2 shen xiao?has rich traditional Chinese customs. The animals and the people in the paintings are benefit by associating together. Especially the gig? the kid and the little pig have the same gesture and vivid funny faces. Every one who has the first sight at it can not hold back a smile.

The Seven Sages of the Bamboo Grove are a group of seven lofty gentlemen who fled the troubles that accompanied the transition between China's Wei and Jin dynasties (mid. 3rd century) and assembled in a bamboo grove where they forgot all of their worldly troubles, losing themselves in pure thought and discussion. This tale was a favored painting theme in Japan, and it was often depicted on screens in the Muromachi period, and then numerous works in various formats were created by artists of all schools during the Momoyama and Edo period. Generally the moso bamboo type is depicted in Japanese paintings of the Seven Sages theme, and the large stalks of this bamboo type form the straight lined compositional structure of these paintings. Here the bamboo has been minimized, and indeed the seven sages themselves have been made smaller elements in an overall depiction of the landscape. In terms of its position within Togan's oeuvre, this work with its stable, superbly ordered composition is a classic example of Togan's mid-period, with the clear brushwork and simplified ink tonalities seen in its sandy banks and large foreground boulders revealing the nascence of his later style.

The theme "Seven Sages in the Bamboo Grove" has a long history in both Chinese and Japanese painting. Part fact and part legend, the seven sages were Taoists supposedly endowed with supernatural powers. They rejected the authority of Confucian teaching and government, opting instead for a reclusive lifestyle. They were said to gather in a bamboo grove from time to time to enjoy one anothers' literary talents, irreverence, and eccentricities. This behavior contested the long-held Confucian ideal of virtue earned through public service. It proposed, instead, that self-perfection came through the cultivation of individuality. While those marginalized from the affairs of government often politicized the seven sages theme, those whose reclusive sensibilities were motivated by religious practice or aesthetic pursuits also ascribed to it. Zen monasteries and their patrons, for example, often commissioned seven sages paintings. This theme was equally popular among members of the governing samurai class who, like Chinese literati before them, often gathered in their villas and teahouses to cultivate their personal interests in poetry, music, painting, and the tea ceremony.

Tsunenobu deploys the full repertoire of Kan?school sensibilities in this rendition of the seven sages theme. Large rock masses heavily weight the outside corners of the two screens. The higher concentration and careful placement of bamboo in these sections of the screens emphasizes this point. To the center of the screens, the landscape elements thin out and fade back into the mist. Kan?painters often used this compositional arrangement to frame the scene and define the ground on which they set the figures.

Facility with the brush and a powerful sense of line were hallmarks of the Kan?tradition. Tsunenobu's treatment of the robes worn by the sages makes this evident. The contour lines along the hems of the garments are dynamic and aggressive to the point where they contradict the sense of space created by the landscape elements.
