Wu Changhsou, 吴昌硕 or 吳昌碩, was an important figure who initially concentrated on poetry and calligraphy and was the pre-eminent figure in the Xiling Society of Seal Arts in Hangzhou. His later paintings were noted for helping rejuvenate the art of painting flowers and birds. He gained considerable fame and was particularly respected in Japan.
An excellent reference work.
