Visual Description : The painting is predominantly blue and green, the standard colors of the academic style. A single female figure stands underneath a pine tree with a stork, standing on one leg. A spray of plum blossoms are immediately behind the stork and the woman. She can be tentatively described as a Taoist immortal. The immortal combined with the iconographic elements of the pine tree, plum blossoms, and stork suggest that this painting was kept for good luck by a Chinese family.
