Description This painting is intended to suggest an earlier ideal time: the landscape is painted in the "blue-and-green" style that dates back to the Tang [T'ang] Dynasty (7th-10th centuries), and the harp the lady plays is an ancient instrument. Beside the man lies a zither, the noble instrument of the leisured scholar. Qiu Ying's [Ch'iu Ying] original painting is in the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.
