Who was Zhou Shuxi?
Zhou learned painting along with her sister Zhou Shuhu from her father. Of their work Jiang Shaoshu wrote in Wusheng Shi Shi that they were "celebrated for their superb painting skills and good at painting flowers, insects and birds. In their works, lines are so thin and cursive that they look like silk produced by silkworm in spring while colors are bright and spirit is vivid."
Jiang continued in describing some of Zhou's other works: "She was also skilled in painting Buddha statues with solemn and dignified bearing and sometimes painted horses of other regions with exquisite dots and washes and meticulous composition."
Married Huang of her hometown.
