Puru(August 30, 1896 – November 18, 1963), also known as Pu Xinyu, Xinyu being his courtesy name, and Xishan Yishi (Hermit of West Mountain) being his sobriquet, was a traditional Chinese painter, calligrapher and nobleman. A member of the Manchu Aisin Gioro clan, the ruling house of the Qing dynasty, he was a cousin to Puyi, the last Emperor of China. Puru was reputed to be as talented as the famous Southern artist Zhang Daqian (Chang Ta-ch’ien). Together, they became known as “P’u of the North and Chang of the South.”
Puru fled to Taiwan after the Communist Party of China came to power, and was appointed by Chiang Kai-shek as a Manchu representative at the Constitutional National Assembly. In Taiwan, he made a living selling paintings and calligraphy, teaching as a professor of fine arts at the National Taiwan Normal University, and eventually dying in Taipei.
