About

The landscape painting by Zhang Zhuanxiang is followed by an inscription which reads, ‘In the summer of the year 'wuzi' (1948), Yaonan came to visit me and requested me to paint a landscape on a fan. I therefore sat beside the rainy window, and painted this ‘Sound of Pines and the flowing spring’ after Wang Hui [1632-1717], for his appraisal. Zhang Zhuanxiang, Recluse of Cold Plum Blossom.

The inscription is followed by a signature seal: ‘Zhuanxiang’. On the back of the fan is calligraphy in seal script, which is a copy of the inscription cast on a Western Zhou (c 11th century-771 BCE) bronze vessel. It is followed by an inscription: ‘for the appraisal of the brother Yaonan, by Zhou Jiwei. There are two signature seals.
