This is a Yang Liu Qing print on the subject of “Searching for Plum Blossoms in the Snow”.  The phrase is generally used to described scholars appreciation and effort with poety.  The old man on the donkey is Meng Hao Ran, a Tang dynasty poety; he is known to have gotten his inspiration from ploughing through the snow on the  Ba Qiao Bridge in Xian.
