Description This is a print of an original Chinese painting by Jeanne Rewa. Jeanne lived in China from 2004-2006 and studied Chinese language and art independently. The print includes an image of the traditional brocade silk mounting - no additional matting is necessary!
Qian Li Ma means 1,000 Li Horse. The Li is a Chinese unit of distance equal to a half a kilometer. The 1,000 Li Horse was a horse fabled to travel 1,000 Li (about 300 miles) in one day. Such horses were sought after by royalty during the Tang Dynasty, when horses reached their peak in Chinese cultural reverence.

Jeanne Rewa Member Since November 2006 Artist Statement An avid horselover, possibly since birth, I have been drawing horses since I could first pick up a crayon. My artistic ability has increased alongside my knowledge of horse anatomy, motion, and character. I have worked with many types of horses, training, riding, and showing. I work primarily in graphite pencil, but also use watercolor pencils and have recently added Chinese watercolor to my media, after living in China for two years.
