Mountain Landscape with Scholar in a Pavilion and Two Figures Approaching


Description Conservation Provenance Inscription Credit
Description A sage and his servant make their way to a retreat in the mountains. Some of the sounds they hear come from the brook behind them. Some are produced by a second sage in the retreat ahead: these are the exquisite harmonies of the "ch'in," the stringed instrument that only the most refined persons play. The painting bears the signature of Sheng Mou, one of the great masters of the 14th century, but it is probably somewhat later in date.
