Porcelain painting by Wang Yeting c 1935

"Eight Friends of Zhushan" - Wang Yeting

One of the most famous porcelain artist that helped revive Chinese porcelain art in the first decades of the 20th century.

First two line of poems are:

Bamboo deep inviting guest to staying overnight
Lotus quiet take breeze moment
The bamboo stretches deep to invite a night's stay,
the lotus holds her breath for the guest to catch a breeze.
