“Landscape” 1682 山水

Hanging scroll, ink and color on silk
85.0 x 30.4 cm. (33 1/2 x 12 in.)

Inscription:
“The flavors of the world become insipid with age,
closing my door I enjoy living alone;
Totally at leisure even the monks envy me,
because of my many additions friends often keep a distance.
With dew from bamboo I comb my hair indifferently,
smoke from preparing tea awakens me from a dream;
With poetry in my heart and inspired by wine,
what can I do but splash ink again?

During the tenth lunar month of the year 1682, painted and inscribed by Zhu Xuan.”

Artist’s seals:
Zhu Xuan; Xuetian (“Snowy Field”)

“Landscape after Chen Ruyan”
倣陳汝言山水図

Hanging scroll, ink on paper
81.0 x 43.0 cm. (32 x 17 in.)

Inscription:
“The landscapes of Chen Qiushui (Chen Ruyan) combine untrammeled purity with elegant harmony, and he was very nearly the sole artist from then till now. Huang Zijiu (Huang Gongwang) during his entire lifetime was not willing to lightly write a single poem, but when one looks at Qiushui’s paintings, he wrote poetic inscriptions without tiring. The willingness of his heart to respond (to such requests) could not be increased. In this scroll I spontaneously used him as a model, and if Yifeng laoren (Huang Gongwang) could see it, he would certainly say the dots and washes were from Qiushui. Chamo shanqiao, Wang Luo.”

Artist’s seals:
Wang Gengnan; Yizi meiqiao; Chenghuai tonglang yue
