Three columns of calligraphy in cursive script complement a single spray of bamboo bending in the wind. The arc of the bamboo is emphasized by the repetitive, bladelike strokes used to render the leaves.
Wu Zhen, one of the Four Great Masters of the Yuan Dynasty, is particularly renowned for his ink paintings of bamboo. In his inscription, Wu Zhen states that he painted this work after seeing a stone engraving of a similar painting by the Song dynasty artist and poet Su Shi(1037-1101).
