Han Huang

        Han Huang (韓滉, 723-787), courtesy name Taichong (太沖), formally Duke Zhongsu of Jin (晉忠肅公), was an official of the Tang Dynasty, serving as a chancellor during the reign of Emperor Dezong. He was praised by traditional historians for his frugality and personal integrity, but blamed for being overly harsh and cruel in his governance.

        Han Huang’s most renowned painting is a scroll of Five Bulls (五牛圖), which is the most famous Chinese painting of bulls.
