Lu Fo-Ting was born in Biyang County, Henan Province. He first started learning western painting and later switched to learning the traditional Chinese painting. After migrating to Taiwan, he was fully dedicated to promoting the fine arts education. In calligraphy, he is famed for his Regular Script. He developed the "Lu style", which was a combination of the Regular and the Clerical Script and incorporated the styles of the Sutra Stone Valley at Mount Tai and seal script. The style is rounded, powerful and simple. Since the 1970s, he started his attempts at Zen painting with the splash technique. He also transformed the Han characters into original character paintings, which became a well-designed unique art form incorporating the Analysis of Characters, calligraphy and painting.
The piece "Spring in Taroko" depicts the spring scenery in Taroko on the Central Cross-Island Highway. The cliff is painted in ink, and the bright cherry blossoms in the canyon are painted in red, white and pink dots. On the side of the valley in the bottom-right corner in the front section, a person dressed in aboriginal clothing stands at the entrance of the canyon holding an object on the head.
