Ma Quan (Chinese: 馬荃, dates unknown), courtesy name Jiangxiang (Chinese: 江香), was a Qing painter who lived during the late 17th–18th centuries, specialising in bird and flower painting. As a female artiste who sold her paintings, Ma’s art style is markedly alternating from both that of the imperial court and contemporary “talented youth ladies” (Chinese: 名媛).
