Covers from album of birds, flowers, and calligraphy


  • Catalogue text

    The highly colourful bird and flower paintings are loosely painted in the traditional mineral and plant pigments combined with ink favoured by Cheng Shifa. In the preface to a volume of bird and flower paintings published around the time this album was painted, Cheng describes the genre as a supplement to figure painting, which has always been his principal concern.
