Lin Liang (Chinese: 林良; pinyin: Lín Liáng; Wade–Giles: Lin Liang) (ca. 1424-1500) was a Chinese imperial painter of plum, flower, and fruit works during the Ming Dynasty (1368–1644).[1]

Lin was born in Nanhai in the Guangdong province.[2] His style name was 'Yishan'. Lin often painted with a very unconstrained style. After Yan Cong, whom Lin may have known during his time in the capital, he is considered the first of the Cantonese Painters.
