Description
A collaborative work, a poem by the Chinese poet and activist Kang Tongbi (Madame Lo Chong) who lived in exile from 1901 to the early 1920's. The poem was "From the Chinese and signed by Madame Lo Chong / Put into English verse by Sybil Bristowe." Kang Tongbi signed the work on the right hand side, both in English and Chinese. Sybil Bristowe was a noted early 20th century English poet and calligrapher who did the calligraphy for this work. She is most known for her poetry done at the front during World War I. See our biography for more information on Kang Tongbi. From the collection of Danish critic and author Georg Bröchner, who wrote for the British art magazine "The Studio" in the early 20th century.
