This is a delicate landscape.  There are mountain crags, dispersed trees and bushes, and some houses/huts depicted.  There is calligraphy on the upper right hand corner with one red seal, and towards the upper left corner with a red seal.  There is also another red seal on the lower left hand corner.  The colors are muted and are barely discernable from one another.  There is a central jutting rock in the center of the painting that takes up a lot of horizontal space, and encourages the eye to travel upwards.

This landscape scene has an expansive blue sky in the upper half of the composition contrasted with the dark countryside, painted in hues of dark green and brown, in the lower portion.  On the horizon, in between these two areas, is a mountain range with sharp pointed peaks. The forms of the bright white clouds mimick the foliage of the trees.<br />There are figures in the foreground area, although the rugged countryside shows no sign of habitation. On the right, two women are shown bending over, washing clothes in a small stream. There is a man sitting next to a laundry basket in the far left corner. A fourth figure, seen from the back only, is placed in the center area of the foreground.

He holds his hat in his hands. His uniform decorations and medals are shown in great detail.<br />

Mt. Williamson, Sierra Nevada, from Manzanar, California
Gift of Harry H. Lunn, Jr.
A small gathering of buildings is nestled at the bottom of a tall, rounded mountain range. Slightly above the settlement, two travelers make their way along the mountain path. A few trees crow up out of the mountains. The mountain range near the small village cuts diagonally across the picture plane, from bottom left to middle right. The top left of the image also contains mountains, taller still. Across from these on the top right is calligraphic text and two seals.
