Description This composition is oriented vertically, with a stream at the bottom (away from the blade). A scholar sits in a hut. Behind the hut is a pine tree and a mountain landscape. A full moon can be seen behind clouds near the mountains. A scholar in the mountains is a common trope in Chinese painting that was adopted in Japanese painting, as well.
