Abstract

Recently, we had reported a case of the first oriental artist to be influenced by Alzheimer’s disease. In the report, a Chinese master of painting was diagnosed of AD and his painting style changed remarkably after he developed AD. The master used to be known for the realistic renderings of natural objects, such as flowers and birds. But his painting style changed remarkably after the AD. In fact, his artworks after the disease represented two series of topics, the natural objects such as flowers and birds and the scene series. In the previous report, we showed only the former series. However, we considered it more impressive for the scene series. Thus, we presented here the works of the latter.
