One of the earliest paintings in the family’s possession.  It dates back to Liu’s time after the establishment of the National Academy of Art in Hangzhou in 1928 and coincides with the Westlake Expo 1929.  We don’t know he brought it with him to America or if it was somehow survived and was sent over.
