Lin Liang was a Chinese imperial painter of plum, flower, and fruit
works during the Ming Dynasty (1368–1644). Lin was born in Nanhai
in the Guangdong province. His style name was 'Yishan'. Lin often
painted with a very unconstrained style. After Yan Cong, whom Lin
may have known during his time in the capital, he is considered the
first of the Cantonese Painters. This one was one of his optimum
artworks collected by Nanjing Municipal Museum.
