Mountain village among pines and white clouds

Artist Unknown, China

This fan painting shows a mountain village teeming with activity. The peaceful scene provides a glimpse at daily life, depicting villagers pushing carts of goods and traveling into and out of town, sometimes on horseback. The eye follows this lively village of white buildings and tan roofs as it weaves its way up the mountain slope to what appears to be a royal dwelling or city center capped with emerald green rooftops and enveloped by rolling white clouds.

Blue Mountains and White Clouds

Artist Unknown, China

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.
