Nice find, though the format does seem unusually small. It's possible that the date is actually 1945, i.e., the 34th year of the Republic of China. In either case it is tighter than some other works associated with her that can be seen here, probably because at that time she had not yet matured into her own style: | Associations | Articles | Exhibitions | Galleries |
