This fan painting shows a charming scene of figures boating in a river framed by overhanging branches flowering in pink. The inscription states: “Today is the Dragon Boat Festival. This is painted to welcome my daughter Yishan home for a reunion. Inscribed by Baoshi in the early evening of 25 June 1963.” It is noteworthy that Fu Baoshi chose a joyful spring scene to express his delight about his daughter having returned home.
