Description

Bamboo sketches. Scroll painting. Artist Wu Zhen 吳鎮 ( 1280 - 1354 CE). Artist name is present along with colophons and seals. The bottom portion of the original painting has been slightly cut-off (judging from the calligraphy which appears to be one character or two less and not in couplet style). Some are difficult to decipher. Formerly in the collection of John Calvin Ferguson (1866 - 1945 CE).
