DSC_6713 Heroes or bandits!? Part of scroll by Ying Po-chong 1940 - .jpg

This painting (Ink and colour on silk, horizontal scroll) depicts an ancient battle scene.
The soldiers sweep across the plain in clouds of dust, riding typical robust and
slim-legged Tang style horses. A song of war chariots is a poem by Du Fu to express
his anti-war attitude. By entitling this work in Chinese after the poem, Ying Po-chong,
the painter manifests his concurrence.
