Lot Details
A famille rose rectangular plaque
Painted by He Xuren (1882-1941), dated 1932
Delicately and attractively painted with a wintry landscape, a traveller and companion crossing a snow-clad rustic bridge between long curling snow-laden leafless branches except for a pine retaining its needles, a solitary scholar at a book-laden table tucked in a retreat within a fir-tree forest in the distance.
12cm x 17cm (8¾in x 6¾in)
