Zhu Quan   Wild Geese in Autumn   Portrait of Zhu Quan   首頁
Wild Geese in Autumn over the Grave of The Emaciated Immortal 秋鴻圖
  An oil painting by Edgar Francisko Jimenez1        
This painting was based on photographs I took at the grave of
Zhu Quan, Christmas, 1999. The grave is in the countryside west of Nanchang, just outside a village where everyone has the surname Zhu. The pillars in the center are spirit posts put in front of the grave to ward off evil spirits.

Zhu Quan compiled Shen Qi Mi Pu and is the reputed author of the melody Wild Geese in Autumn (Qiu Hong). Wild Geese are associated with exile and Zhu Quan is thought to have considered himself in exile in Nanchang.

 

 

 
Footnotes (Shorthand references are explained on a separate page)

1. Edgar Francisko Jimenez
Originally from Columbia, he studied calligraphy and Chinese painting in China. A number of his paintings can be found online, but the most specific information I have for his current location, dated 2009 (in Spanish), says that in 2006 he left Toronto to return to Bogotá. Two other images by him on this website are with:

Ling Xu Yin and
He Ming Jiu Gao.

The influence of his Chinese training can also be seen in some of his paintings on Western themes, such as this Danza del Sol.
