Tang Yin (1470-1524), better known by his courtesy name Tang Bohu, was a Chinese scholar, painter, calligrapher, and poet of the Ming Dynasty whose life story has become a part of popular lore. Tang Yin is one of the most famous painters in the history of Chinese art. He was a pupil of the great Shen Zhou (1427-1509) and a friend of Wen Zhengming (1470-1559). While Tang Yin is associated with paintings of feminine beauty, his paintings (especially landscapes) otherwise exhibit the same variety and expression of his peers and reveal a man of both artistic skill and profound insight. Tang Yin perfected an admirable hand in the semi-cursive script (also known as running script). His poems touch on themes which people like Wen Zhengming or the older Shen Zhou would have never taken up.
