Horse and rider amble through the shade of ancient willows,
Somewhere deep among the lovely flowers, birds are singing.
Translation by Stephen D. Allee
Qian Shoutie, also known by his given name, Ya, was a painter, calligrapher, and seal carver. Both before and after World War II, he was primarily active in the city of Shanghai, the cultural center of twentieth-century China. Qian's interest in various types of ancient Chinese script is evident in many of his seal carvings and works of calligraphy, such as this one, in which he has used a style of archaic seal script to render a simple poetic couplet.
