Catalogue Note

Tang Hung inscription:
Dong Qi (1772–1844), whose courtesy name was Lexian and whose sobriquets were Shinong and Xiaoluofuke, had the studio name Fangsunge. Originally from Xiushui, he was a well-known literatus of the Qianlong (1735–1796) and Jiaqing (1796–1820) eras. This album is among his finest works. It was completed in the summer of 1818, over 170 years ago. His precise brushwork, understated but elegant application of color, clear and outstanding compositions, and natural perspectives make this work a masterpiece.
