Home >> Art >> Painting >> Masters >>     Han Huang 

       Han Huang (韓滉, 韩滉, 723-787), courtesy name Taichong (太沖), formally Duke Zhongsu of Jin (晉忠肅公), was an official of the  Tang Dynasty, serving as a chancellor during the reign of Emperor Dezong. He was praised by traditional historians for his frugality and personal integrity, but blamed for being overly harsh and cruel in his governance.

       Han’s most renowned painting is a scroll of Five Bulls, which is perhaps the most famous Chinese painting of bulls.
