Cows at a watering place

  • Description

    The trees and particularly the sky in this drawing are similar to Xu Bing’s views across fields in his early landscape drawings. This similarity is one of the more direct results of the ultimately French style embodied in the Soviet model of art instruction he received in his early training.
