Chinese scholars used natural imagery and scenery to aid in contemplation within the walls of their studios. The complex beauty inherent to landscapes and natural forms inspired clear and concise thinking. In this hanging scroll, outstretched branches are dotted with plum blossoms, emblems of winter and symbols of longevity. Guided by the gestural extensions of the calligraphic branches, the artist followed broad initial brushstrokes with delicately painted stems and flowers to create a carefully balanced composition.

“Over the years, I’ve incorporated many pieces from PAGODA RED into my designs. Not only can they balance new furnishings (and often new construction) by feeling more established, but the pieces emanate a sense of rich history, often leaving you wondering where they were in a previous life. These beautiful pieces carefully hand-selected by the team at PAGODA RED, coupled with their unbelievable customer service, make them a must-have for any home.”
