Sun Yun-Sheng was born in Ninghe, Hubei. He studied with Chang Dai-Chien for 47 years. His work is carefully executed, delicate and elegant. He had mastery in landscape, people, flower and bird, insects and plants. The use of colors is vivid. His court-style, free-spirited, ink splash and color splash techniques are all utilized with ease. The composition combines the traditional and the modern techniques and touches. He was famed as a first-class painter by the fine arts field on both sides of the Taiwan Strait.
The piece "Landscape" was painted on paper. In the bottom-right corner, there is a large block of bluish-green ink splash depicting the rocky mountainside alongside the creek. The layers are distinctive and the mountainside is tall and magnificent. The creek stretches upwards in a zigzag manner. In a small boat, two people are enjoying the serenity among the mountains and the water. A small bridge crosses the creek and stretches downwards. The cloud and mist on top of the mountain veil the cottages and create a heavenly atmosphere.
