Hand scroll with colophon.

According to the calligraphic text, Shen Chou, one of the major artists of the Ming Dynasty, painted this handscroll when he was 81 years old. It depicts a bold outcropping of rocks with trees and a small house. A waterfall pours down from a cliff into cascading springs. The stooped elderly man who has emerged from the house peers over the side of the outcropping at the rushing waters far below him.

The scroll, which would be unrolled and viewed from right to left, has seven added colophons. With their strong calligraphy, these colophons are beautiful works of art in themselves. They were probably written by the literary circle of the scroll’s owner; each offers the writer’s poetic commentary and thoughts on the painting and the artist.
