Court Ladies Preparing Newly-Woven Silk.
Spring Outing of the Tang Court, by Zhang Xuan.

Zhang Xuan (Chinese: 張萱pinyin: Zhāng XuānWade-Giles: Chang Hsüan) (713-755) was a Chinese painter who lived during the Tang Dynasty (618–907).

Although he painted many pieces of art, he was best known for the painting Court Ladies Preparing Newly-Woven Silk, of which no copy survives except a copy painted by Emperor Huizong of Song (r. 1100–1125) in the early 12th century. He also painted Spring Outing of the Tang Court, of which later paintings imitated.
