Considered as one of the 'Eight Friends of Zhushan,' a small circle of educated porcelain painters in Jingdezhen during the Republic period, Wang Yeting (1884-1942) is renowned for his landscape paintings, particularly in the style of the four great landscape painters of the Qing dynasty known as the 'Four Wangs': Wang Shimin (1642-1715), Wang Hui (1632-1717), Wang Jian (1598-1677) and Wang Yuanqi (1642-1715). Wang Yeting painted many of his works in the blue-green landscape style, and plaques painted in iron-red, such as the present examples, appear to be less common. For two similar iron-red-decorated plaques by the artist, also of landscapes, see Zhushan bayou, Jiangxi, 2003, p. 338, pl. 217 and ibid, p. 345, pl. 224.
