Though the birth and death dates of Ma Wenlin are unknown, he was a court painter of the middle to late Qing dynasty serving in the Ruyi Hall group around the Tongzhi and Guangxu reigns (1862 to 1908).The fans here depict perch, carp, and goldfish of various colors swimming and resting among water plants, creating for a natural sense of liveliness and harmony. Despite the fish scales appearing as crisscrossing arced lines that are slightly formulaic, the brushwork is firm and steady with the ink and color washes done in layers. The goldfish are opulently colored, while the ink tones for the perch and carp are light and elegant. The background water plants have a rich and translucent effect using plant-based colors in the "boneless" method of painting, ranging from light to dark. Solid and void interact with both luminescent beauty and elegant refinement.
