Ding Fuzhi

Ding Fuzhi 丁辅之 (1879–1949), born in Hangzhou, China, was the founding member of Xiling Seal–Carving Association which focused on developing and researching the art of seal, painting, and calligraphy.

He is well known for his creation of seals and his paintings of plum blossoms and fruits in which he used a pointillist technique. The same technique, which branched from Impressionism, was developed by Georges Seurat and Paul Signac in 1886.

Inspired by pictograms, Ding depicted the characteristics of each fruit by mixing the naive quality of each fruit against the primitive oracle–bone script, while employing very sophisticated colorization.
