For Qi Baishi, the morning glory was a favorite subject and source of artistic inspiration. In this painting, the artist depicts a cluster of morning glories in full bloom with their buds, tendrils, and leaves entwined along a stretch of bamboo fence. In this late work, the morning glories are portrayed in an especially unconstrained and spontaneous manner
