With careful brushwork, this 19th-century painting honors the four treasures of the scholar's studio - paper, calligraphy brush, ink, and inkstone. Essential to his way of life, the Chinese scholar used these tools to practice the traditional arts of painting and calligraphy. Still vividly colored, the painting was originally part of a series of paintings framed by tall, open screens. Reframed as an individual work in an unvarnished wood frame, the painting calls attention to the artist’s harmonious composition and use of graphic line.

“PAGODA RED was extremely supportive in helping to pull accessory options together for the Lake Forest Showhouse. After providing them with details and our vision on how we were looking to finish our space, Laurene helped curate options that made it easy for us to edit and finalize. It's also no surprise that the unique pieces we used in our showhouse space were some of the first to sell.”
