|KEY WORD : art history / paintings|
|Chinese painting of the Ming (Jp:Min 明) and Ching (Jp:Shin 清) dynasties. The term, used primarily in distinction to *sougenga 宋元画 (Ch: songyuanhua), designates later Chinese painting. Although artists from Sesshuu Touyou 雪舟等楊 (1420-1506) to Ike no Taiga 池大雅 (1723-76) were influenced by Ming and Ching painting, minshinga never achieved the prestige of sougenga in the eyes of Japanese collectors and artists.|
