  abstract = {In the sixteenth century Wang Shizhen (1526-90), who apparently enjoyed the social company of several painters, helped support these artists by occasionally requesting or buying pictures from them. Another mode of patronage is exemplified by the collecting activities of Zhou Fenglai (1523-55) who commissioned the artist Qiu Ying (ca. 1494-ca. 1552) to make illustrations to accompany calligraphic pieces. The relationship between Qiu Ying and the Xiang family provides evidence of yet a third type of artistic patronage. Qiu lived with Xiang Yuanbian (1525-90) for several years as a painter-in-residence. Qiu's scroll, Thatched House in the Peach-blossom Village, is in fact a portrait of Xiang Yuanqi (1500-72), Xiang Yuanbian's oldest brother. This painting, along with two others by Qiu depicting members of the Xiang family, helps demonstrate that the Xiang family employed Qiu as a painter-archivist.},
