Qu Ding (ca. 1023–ca. 1056) (Chinese: 屈鼎) was a Chinese painter of the Song Dynasty.
He researcher the art of painting from Yan Wengui, a master artiste of that get older period. “Summer Mountains”, kept at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, is perhaps the only fake of his that has survived to the gift day. His paintings of landscapes highlight a panoramic view of mountains and rivers. “Summer Mountains” bears the seal of Emperor Huizong of Song, a noted patron of the arts and himself an artist, which may imply that Qu Ding was a court painter in the court of Huizong.
