Initially he was influenced by the emphasis on monumental landscapes of Tang painters. Their goal to express the grandeur and harmony of nature was exemplified by the established masters such as Wang Wei.

In the case of Zhang San-Feng also written Chang San-Fangalthough often referred to as the founder of Tai Chi, historical evidence does not support this assertion. According to martial art historian Douglas Wile, Zhang was first suggested as the originator of Tai Chi in the middle s.
The legend that developed around the Zhang myth is a good entry point for our discussion of legend mistakenly represented as factual. According to story, Zhang is believed to have developed a fighting style based on his observations of, or dreaming about, a fight between a bird of prey and a snake.
However, historians have been unable to ascertain if Zhang, supposedly an alchemist who lived depending on the source in either the twelfth, thirteenth or fourteenth centuries, ever truly existed. In contrast, historical evidence supports the founding of Tai Chi Chuan as traceable to the Chen Family Village or possibly the Yang Family -about three hundred years ago.
