Professor Perrin Selcer's Environmental History course

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.

The green mountains in this fan painting appear truly vertical and solid. The clouds, too, in spite of their rounded edges appear to be frozen in space. A pine tree bends over the side of the cliff, with its foliage over a traveler in white crossing a bridge below.

Pastoral poet Tao Yuanming (372–427) and a boy-servant bearing chrysanthemums on his back are shown. Two pine trees dominate the composition. Tao Yuanming’s forward gaze and slightly hunched posture exhibit his full inner exhilaration when chrysanthemums were collected. The subtle smile on the poet’s face seems also to reflect a moment of transcendence.<br />
