Wu Zhen, together with Huang Gongwang, Ni Zan and Wang Meng, was called the Four Great Masters of the Yuan Dynasty. His fame rose after the 15th century, and even many anecdotes were created. In fact, he was only a local scholar hermit in Jiaxing, Zhejiang Province in the Yuan Dynasty. He seldom contacted with officials or celebrities, which may be due to his quiet and reserved personality. Most of his paintings are ink bamboo or the ideal landscape of fishing seclusion. This one is a rare early masterpiece, mainly composed of two giant pines (supposed to be locust trees), coupled with the vast plain space, which shows the origin of Song painting. The painting was painted by Taoist Zhang Muyuan, which also shows his close relationship with Taoism.
