A small color painting based on an original by the Ming dynasty Chinese painter Shao Mi (邵彌 c1592-1642) as a way to learn from his style. “Pinxit” in the inscription is Latin for “painted by” and is often found on early American and European paintings. The number in the lower left is from a former inventory system.
