Shen Zhou (1427–1509) from Changzhou, Jiangsu province. His courtesy name was Qi-nan, and he also used the pseudonym Shi-Tien, and is often referred to as Bai Shi Ong (The Man of the White Rock). He is known to be kind, generous and courteous, skilled at poetry, prose, calligraphy, and painting, especially landscapes, and also talented at depicting such subjects as flowers-and-fruit and birds-and-animals in monochrome ink. This painting is selected from the Shen Zhou Sketch Collection, the 15th piece of the collection, and was painted when Shen was 68 years old. The conceptions are perceptive and the brushwork uninhibited that were carefully planned and executed. The rounded 'cat' has only used a few broad strokes to show off the charm of the main character, and it clearly shows deep affection the painter bears his household pet.


The picture has gone through high resolution image processing and professional color management, and been printed on the high-quality art paper to reproduce the original warm texture and delicate colors.
