Abstract: In the late Ming Dynasty, the prosperity of Huizhou painting was closely related to arts patronage. Ding Yunpeng was a representative painter in Huizhou in the late Ming Dynasty. Through a study on his painting career, we can find that although the way of patronage reception was still obscure, arts patronage existed widely and there were various ways to get patronage. Based on their own city and facing the entire Jiangnan region, Huizhou painters successfully integrated into the cultural circle of distinguished personages in Jiangnan with the help of Huizhou elite groups in other areas. Patronage from the local city and Jiangnan had very important influence on Huizhou painting. Therefore, the paintings of Ding Yunpeng that we see today not only reflect the influence of Huizhou characteristic engraving (painting) industry and ink production industry, but also reflect the trend of thought and fashion of the times in the late Ming Dynasty, and actively respond to the aesthetic needs of elites of all classes in Jiangnan cultural circle.

Key words: the late Ming Dynasty, arts patronage, Huizhou, painting, Ding Yunpeng
