Given its subject matter of lotus flowers, herons, kingfisher, and dragonflies, this hanging scroll may have been hung for display during the summer.
Pairs of herons, kingfishers, and dragonflies punctuate a profusion of lotus in this composition that, given the orientation of the herons and the clustering of motifs in the left-hand side of the work, may have once been the left painting of a pair. Given its subject matter, this hanging scroll may have been hung for display during the summer.
