Li T'ang

Li T'ang (lē täng) [key], c.1050–1130, Chinese painter of the Sung dynasty. A leader of the academy founded by the Emperor Hui-tsung, he established a mode of painting that was widely followed in succeeding centuries. A master of village scenes, he also initiated a more intimate scale in landscape painting, with greater expanses of space and mist. The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, owns a handscroll attributed to him.
