Fan K'uan (active 10th-early 11th century), a native of Hua-yüan (modern Yao-hsien) in Shensi province, often traveled the area between the capital and Loyang.
Although he was known for his magnanimous character, straightforward personality, and fondness of drink and the Tao, he is famous now for his landscape painting.
