Zhe School


Zhe School

The Zhe School was a school of painters, and part of the Southern School, which thrived during the Ming dynasty. The school was lead by Dai Jin. The "Zhe" of the name refers to Dai Jin's home province - Zhejiang. The school was not a school in the proper sense of the word in that the painters did not formulate a new distinctive style, preferring instead to further the style of the Southern Song. Instead the school were identified by the formal, academic and conservative outlook.
