This is a hanging scroll that includes three caligraphic inscriptions at the top, and depicts three figures. The caligraphy is inscribed on three squares of colored paper (red, white and green) decorated with an abstracted pattern of clouds painted in gold. The figure at the top of of the composition is a woman dressed in bright, patterned robes. She is seated behind a curtain that separates her from the two men in the lower half of the painting. The man closest to her appears older, and is seated by a box holding brushes and other tools for calipgraphy, and holds a brush and sheaf of paper. The third figure is seated in the lower left corner of the painting, and, like the other figures, wears voluminous robes, although his are less ornately patterend. In the bottom right corner of the painting is the artist's signature and red seal.

This hanging scroll depicts what the title suggests, a spring landscape with willow trees and houses by a shore. The shore snakes up the center of the painting with the land being on the right and the water on the left. The willow trees line the coast and in the center of the painting are four or five roofed buildings, assumed to be houses. As we move up the coast the land becomes to form a hill and rises dramatically in altitude with fewer obviously visible willow trees and no buildings. The coast gets fuzzier as it gets further away suggesting the presence of trees. There are mountains in the distance. On the upper left is a three-line inscription in black followed by two red seals.

A finely potted deep stoneware beaker with a rounded bottom and a mottled, dark green glaze. The attractive glaze effect is achieved by applying small dots of a wax over the entire surface of the vessel, and then pouring the glaze from the top down. Unglazed ring interior is the result from a clay ring to separate one pot from another in firing.

As the title suggests, this hanging scroll depicts a river landscape in the snow. The painting is suspended in two different shades of blue patterned silk with gold accents. In the foreground of the painting, there are three figures hauling a covered boat. The people are off to the left side while the boat hangs over a small precipice on the right. Just beyond them is the large river. Beyond that are snowy mountaintops partially obscured by mist and clouds. There is a signature on the bottom right followed by two red seals.

The subjects of this hanging scroll are as the title suggests, geese, peonies, and grasses. There are two guys one in front of the other. The front goose has a brown coloration and a white belly while the one behind it is of white coloration. The peonies and grasses are to the left. The plants reach three-fourths up the page as there is much negative space in this painting. The painting is very detailed and uses color and ink. There is an inscription on the bottom left under the plants followed by a red seal.
