Description Now detached, these four leaves were originally joined together. They were to be looked at one by one, like pages in a book. A leading artist of Anhui province, Zha Shibiao [Cha Shih-piao] was an old man when he painted these leaves. For him, as for other Chinese painters, nature was a refuge from political strife.
