A scroll and a small lantern depicted in this 19th-century painting suggest the romantic notion of a Chinese scholar painting in the evening hours. Remarkably vivid, this painting was originally part of a series of paintings paying tribute to the scholar’s arts that was framed by tall, open screens. Reframed as an individual work in a wood frame, the painting calls attention to the artist’s harmonious composition and use of graphic line.
