Description:

A hanging scroll depicting two water buffaloes in a stream with a bamboo forest nearby, in ink and colour on paper.
Two water buffaloes are in a stream with bamboo. There is an inscription in black ink at the top of the painting; the text at the left reads "painted in the summer of 1937 by Ou Lizhuang in Chang An, now known as the Fujian Province". To the left of the inscription there are two seals in red ink. There are two inscriptions in black ink at the top of the reverse of the scroll.
The scroll is mounted on silk and has a wooden top bar to which a cord for hanging is attached. The bottom of the scroll has a round wooden pole to provide necessary weight for display and for rolling the scroll up for storage.
