Description A man in scholar's robes approaches two women--all of them unidentified, though one cataloguer thought they were a famous 4th-century calligrapher and two of his wives. Du Jin, who nicknamed himself "Antiquated and Crazy," was a Nanjing painter who earned a minor post in the official exam but became a full-time professional painter instead. Spurious signature of Tang Yin (1470-1524).
