Lovely painting on silk, probably dating to the 40s or 50s, and still in the original frame which simulates bamboo. The piece double matted and appears to be signed on the right though I cannot read the signature. The image size is 12" long x 9" high and the framed size is 17" long x 13" high. This appears to be a night scene and the shades of black used throughout the painting would seem to indicate this. In the foreground is a large tree on a riverbank, and behind it houses, and the river with the boat moving along the water.
