inscribed in brush and ink in image (in Chinese characters) u.l.-u.r.: (Warmth, sadness and happiness all at the same time, During the cultural revolution, [we were] frightened with the fear that some crazy fellow [red guards] would break our doors, search our house and confiscate our property. Whenever we heard the slightest noise, we were filled with fear and immediately jumped to a high place at the roof top of the house. Together with our family and our animals, we suffered anxiety and fear, [painted in] the year 1989, [by] Huang Yongyu.)
