Zhou Fang

Zhou Fang
(c730-c800) (China); aka Chou Fang / Fang, Chou / Fang, Zhou / Ching-Hsuan / Ching-Yuan / Chung-Lang Tang Dynasty court painter and figure painter. According to John Byron in Portrait of a Chinese Paradise (p. 44) he is the "first individual artist to be identified with erotic art." and sometimes regarded as the greatest Chinese erotic painter. Mi Fei, the Sung era painter, held him in the same class as such masters as Ku Kai-Chih, Lu T'ang-wei, and Wu Tao-tzu. In his erotic works he preferred plumper women and showed oversized genitals, which may have influenced later Japanese shunga.
