Catalogue Note

Peng Chunshi's inscription:
The willow by the stream lacks a breeze, and the summer day is long. Houses are near the water, where the lotus flowers are fragrant.
The clouds appear like white belts, and the mountains are darkish blue. The painting clearly distinguishes several steadfast ladies.

I still remember the good old days with Yang [Qianli] and Xie [Wuliang]. In the boudoir we would drink tea, paint, and enjoy wine.
We engaged in summer pleasures and discussed affairs of the day. Spare me words about anything else.

[Huang] Junbi is very skilled at painting green landscapes on fans. I therefore wrote two poems, the second of which waxes nostalgic on the past. Mrs. Bi-Che exhibited marvelous skill at both calligraphy and painting. I remember that in the past, in Hong Kong, Yang Qianli, Xie Wuliang, and I would often visit the boudoir, where we would discuss poetry, paint, and at times drink tea. It is hard to believe that twenty years have passed.
