scroll painting (art)

Paper scroll with images of three pots of flowers in black, painted with brush and ink. At the top right is an inscription in two columns, a poem relating to orchids. The last two letters (bottom of left column) are probably the author's name. Below this is the author's oval stamp in red. At the bottom left of the scroll is a square red stamp, probably the painter's stamp. It is pasted onto a brown background with glossy brown geometrical and plant designs.
