Gu Kaizhi (顾恺之) was a Chinese painter and calligrapher who lived during the Jin Dynasty. He is considered one of the most important figures in Chinese art history, particularly in the development of figure painting. Gu Kaizhi was born in Wuxi, Jiangsu province, and was known for his skill in painting figures, landscapes, and animals. He was also a master calligrapher and his style greatly influenced the development of Chinese calligraphy. Gu Kaizhi's most famous work is the Admonitions of the Instructress to the Court Ladies, a set of handscrolls that depict scenes from a famous poem written by Zhang Hua, a Jin Dynasty writer. The scrolls are considered one of the earliest examples of narrative painting in China and are admired for their delicate lines, graceful composition, and vivid depiction of human emotions. Gu Kaizhi's influence on Chinese art continued long after his death, with many artists throughout history looking to his work as a source of inspiration. He is still revered today as one of the greatest painters in Chinese history.
