Since late nineteenth century, the Lingnan School of painting has exerted tremendous influence on the painting development of the Lingnan area, so much so that it brought forth a new movement in Chinese painting in the first half of the twentieth century. This was the result of the heroic effort of Gao jianfu (1879-195 1), Gao Qifeng (1889.-1933) and Chen Shuren (1883-1948). The success of these three painters was so prominent that they are hailed,as the 'Three Masters of Lingnan'. To trace the early styles of the painting of the Lingnan School, we shall have to study the work of the famous flower painters, ju Lian (1828-1904), ju Chao (1811-1865), Song Guangbao (19th century) and Mengjinyi (19th century).
