This freehand brush painting (or sumie) features a content fox under a fence of grapes. The piece fully engaged the ink and Xuan rice paper, and the shades were made dream-like, especially in the background, which contrasted sharply with the detailed face of the happy fox, licking his paw contently. It is a simple piece of painting, but we can weave an entire story around it, and this possibility is the very spirit of the oriental brush art.
The title means “dream”, written in Chinese cursive script.
