- Curator's comments
- The painting shows a peaceful enclosure with a majestic tree branching out over the picture plane. While the seasons change, the bamboo fence around the tree offers protection.
The works in the album are contemporary manifestations of the three perfections (sanjue), poetry, calligraphy and painting.
