Subject:contemplative monks
Posted By: ryan Fri, Dec 21, 2018 IP: 2600:1702:31b0:89e0:

I believe this scroll to be mid-20th century, though it might be older. Another scroll that my uncle's father brought back after his career in China and Taiwan.

Can anyone tell me who the author is or anything more about it?
