This painting, called Virtuous Impressions of Sir Dongpo (Dongpo xiansheng yiji tu), depicts thirteen anecdotes from important events in the life of Su Shi (or Su Dongpo, 1037–1101). The work’s meticulous and robust outline-painting (baimiao) technique was accomplished with a sophisticated handling of the brush. The vivid figures evoke a realistic aura.

From Yong’an in Fujian Province, Li Zongmo (act. early-17th century) is also known by his courtesy name (zi) Shangxian and by his style names (hao), which include Xiaoqiao and Gubenzi. He is known for his proficiency in painting figures and landscapes.
