Wu Zhen (1280-1354) was a painter during the Yuan dynasty. He lived the life of a recluse and was never very famous or successful during his lifetime, but in the Ming period he came to be designated one of the Four Great Masters of the late Yuan dynasty and his style was favored by many Ming painters, most notably Shen Zhou (1427–1509). Wu was fond of doing ‘ink-plays’, and his drawing shows simplicity and directness.
