“Spring Rain on Apricot Blossoms”

Fan painting, ink and color on paper
16.5 x 54.5 cm. (6 1/2 x 21 1/2 in.)

“A little bit of spring mist, moist like a tavern flag,
the red of the apricot blossoms overwhelms the fence of bamboo;
Rain reaches everywhere, the river current is swift,
only the support hums of the knots, established when it was young.
A poem and painting by Tiesheng for the connoisseurship of master elder brother Youcun.”
