Calligraphy, Qianshen Bai, after Li Bai's (701-762) poem "Zao Fa Baidi Cheng" (Downstream to Jiangling), dated renshen year (1992), three seals, 45 x 13 1/4 in.
N.B. Text can be roughly translated as, "At daybreak I leave Baidi amidst clouds aglow, a thousand miles to Jiangling is a mere day's flow. Whilst monkeys cry incessantly from bank to bank, I've skiffed past a myriad mountains row after row."
Qianshen Bai is a professor of Asian and Chinese Art at the Department of Art History in Boston University.
