    About

    This is a leaf from volume two of Ten Bamboo Studio Collection of Calligraphy and Painting on the technique of painting orchids. The leaves and blossoms in finely graded black ink and elegantly drawn lines resemble the brushstrokes of calligraphy. Orchids bloom in shaded environments and emit a subtle fragrance. As symbolic motifs they represents the educated and erudite literati official who longs to leave all worldly affairs behind for the life of a recluse in nature. According to the inscription, the model for this print was Orchid in Rain by the leading Wu-school artist and literati official Wen Zhengming (1470-1559). The sheet belongs to an eighteenth- century printing, partly from worn woodblocks. Some characters have lost their crisp contours and several leaves have broken lines.
