Ten-panel screen depicting similar mountain scenes over changing seasons. A spring scene begins on the right, gradually changing over the ten images to winter on the left. In an upper corner of each scene is a corresponding seasonal poetic inscription. These images are created using ink and color on paper, which was mounted on the upper two-thirds of each panel of the screen.
In this image of bamboo bent under heavy snow the leaves are depicted with vigorous yet controlled strokes of the brush, while the snow is indicated by surrounding areas of blank paper with dark ink, a traditional technique in monochrome ink painting.
This print is vertically oriented with gray markings. A cream border surrounds it and it has “MORNING” written below it. The lower half of the print has a busy square. There is a pyramid of people to the right, with lovers, beggars, and a woman warming her hands over a fire. The left has a woman in a gown and a small boy behind her. Beyond them in the distance is a large mass of people carrying posters. The upper half shows the tops of the buildings that line the square. The rooftops has a dusting of snow, and the clouds are dark as if it were an early winter morning.
This winter landscape scene is painted in light pastel colors including, white, blue, pink and gray. The artist has used vigorous brushstrokes and the paint has been applied thickly on the canvas. The scenery is not painted in detail but done in an impressionistic manner.
In the foreground, a snow-covered hill slopes downward from the upper right side of the composition to the lower left. There is one tall tree that frames the scene on the far right and several others clustered on the left. In the middleground area, seen through the branches of these trees, there are factories and buildings of a town. Also, there are figures ice skating on a pond, at the far left of the composition. In the far distance, seen over the edge of the slope, is the skyline of a city, the shapes of skyscrapers silhouetted against a cloudy sky.
Though this painting was not dated, it should be most possibly painted after Chang moved to Michigan in 1974. Perhaps it is because of the cold winter, during this time, Chang created many works on landscape of snow. This is a scene of clearing after snow.
