Lan Ying (1585–1664) was an influential artist active mainly in Hangzhou during the 17th century. Lan adopted the regional styles of the Zhe School and classical modes of literati artists from earlier dynasties, resulting in eclectic landscapes with light colors and elegant brushwork.
Yuan Jiang (1662–1735) and his nephew Yuan Yao (dates unknown) were professional painters active in Yangzhou during the 17th and 18th century.They were also well versed in classical styles and excelled in large landscape paintings with lavish colors and intricate details.
