Two figures reading and drinking tea

Su Liupeng was an outstanding folk painter in early 19th century Guangdong province. He spent his early years in the Luofu Mountains in eastern Guangdong studying painting under Monk Dekun. This experience laid the foundation for his future painting career. He had some thirty hao (alternative names), such as the Woodcutter, most of which were related to the Luofu Mountains and the famous scenic spots there.

Judging by their appearance and clothing, this painting seems to depict the same two men as shown in the other leaf on display from the same album [EA2000.150.a]. The man wearing a hood is reading a handscroll while drinking a cup of tea, and his friend is reading a book held in his hand. Tea is being boiled on a small clay stove. This could depict a leisurely domestic scene from the artist’s life in the mountains.
