Catalogue Note

Artist's inscription:
With new bamboo eaves and mulberry fences, the quiet and spacious studio is lit by the rising sun. During the long afternoon I recite poems as cicadas sing in the trees. As candles burn down into the night, fireflies enter my curtains. Relaxed by the northern window, I am like a person from the time of Emperor Xi. This is all because I am accustomed to the pleasure of reading. The pleasure of reading is an endless pleasure; I hold my zither to play a tune in the summer wind.
