Context: Painted about five years before the colorful handscroll nearby, this landscape illustrates the traditionalism of Chinese painting: while the brush manner is novel, the composition is based upon early Song dynasty (960-1127) models. The soft raveling brushstrokes and lumpy rock shapes are characteristic of the new 14th-century stylistic expression.
