Poems and Notes on Painting

Xie Zhiliu Chinese

Not on view

Here, Xie has written drafts for several poems interspersed with comments on paintings and calligraphy. As some poems refer to scenic places in Sichuan province, such as Mount Emei, Xie may have composed the poems between 1938 and 1945, when he was living in the Sichuan city of Chongqing. The name of Xie's residence, "Bitter Bamboo Studio" (Kuhuang Zhai), is printed on each page.
