Reconsideration of the author of The Thatched Hut of Dreaming of an Immortal in Freer Gallery

 

Fu Shen, Lin Xiao

 

               The aim of this article is to analyse a famous handscroll Painting of Tang Ying, a current collection of Freer Gallery, should be attributed to another painter according to the long colophons. After a long debate between Prof. James Cahill and Mr. Jiang Zhaoshen in 1960s, it is a bit surprising, but interesting, to observe that this masterpiece is an example of how the name of author was cut off and the fake was created instead.
