Scholars in a Landscape

Description Provenance Inscription Credit
Description In 1791, Baigai, a student and teacher of Chinese learning, especially Confucianism, visited the seaport of Nagasaki. There, he was able to meet Chinese visitors and to discuss Chinese painting with them. Following his visit, he developed a somewhat rough-edged but direct and vibrant version of the Chinese educated-amateur style of landscape painting.
