Title Page for the Album of Three Perfections
Wu Hufan used seal script calligraphy to compose this title page. The title is accompanied by a brief biography describing Jiang Shijie’s filial piety and humble habits; Jiang is believed to have emulated not just Ni Zan’s painting style but also the austere lifestyle of the Yuan master.
