The aim of this study is therefore not to try and add more details to his story, but to introduce Wu Changshuo specifically as a painter - though his painting was least appreciated by himself - and to show that underneath the quite modern style typical of the Shanghai School there was still an orthodox painter, clinging to literati ideals of long gone dynasties. I will also show thatthe actual Wu Changshuo - the painter and the person - can be seen in his landscapes rather than in his multitudinous paintings of flowers and fruits.
