Su Shi 蘇軾 (1037 – 1101 AD) as an amateur of art collecting

Bogna Łakomska
Many of the collectors were artists themselves, thus their paintings or calligraphy also became an element of exchange between connoisseurs. This was, among others the case of Su Shi 苏轼 (1037 – 1101) – an excellent writer, poet, artist and statesman whose pieces were often snapped up by others, particularly shortly after being done in a company where the author "had something to drink".
