Antique Chinese scroll painting of a monkey climbing on a persimmon branch, with calligraphy poem and red chop. The image paired with the poem is a charming rebus, as the word "hou" means both "monkey" and "a high ranking official" or a Duke. Dated 1915, attributed to Gao Qifeng (1889-1933).

Provenance: From a private estate in Berkeley, CA. Size: (entire scroll) 67" H x 33" W (painting only) 42" H x 25" W
