This landscapes is painted in the style of literati, an enduring tradition that for the most part shaped the artistic forms of landscapes painted by traditionally educated men for centuries. This image is a 'landscape of the mind,' depicting the inner world of the artist rather than an external reality. The only figure is a solitary scholar alone in a hut.Physical Description
This L-shaped composition uses soft yet bright colors to depict a curving road through rolling green mountains covered with the varing red tones of autumn trees. A solitary figure sits in a pavillion, and the scene is obscured by wisps of white clouds.Primary Object Classification Painting Primary Object Typehanging scrollAdditional Object Classification(s)PaintingRights
