Mountain Landscape

Description Conservation Provenance Inscription Credit
Description The angular brush strokes and bold composition of this painting are hallmarks of the professional Zhe [Che] school painters. Here the Song [Sung] Dynasty style of Ma Yuan [Ma Yuan] is used as a basis for these dramatic mountain forms and sharply defined trees. The location is not specified, but it is likely a view of the area around Hangzhou [Hang-chou], with the Lingyin Temple pagoda and West Lake in the distance.
