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.
