    Formerly on loan to the Phoenix Art Museum

    In the inscription the artist notes that he wrote the couplet with his left hand. In 1737, a year before this couplet was written, he lost the use of his right arm, but still continued to paint, write calligraphy and carve seals, deftly adjusting to his new situation.
