Description Conservation Exhibitions Provenance Inscription Credit
Description This is the countryside as it ought to be: at lower right a man sits on the riverbank grasping a fish, his sandals beside him; in the distance, boys ride water buffalo. Best of all would be to live the life of one of the leisured scholars in the elaborate pavilion, sitting at a desk or enjoying a meal. Spurious signature of Hsieh H'üan.
