Zhou is good at poetry and has expertise in history, literature and appreciating artworks. In his later years, he devoted himself to study bronze and stone inscriptions and was one of the leaders of the Beijing-Tianjin painting school. In 1920, he established the Chinese Painting Research Association with Jin Cheng and Chen Shizeng.
