Blue-and-green landscape handscroll

Tao Cheng (T'ao Ch'eng)

Among the rolling green mountains, figures in this scroll go about their lives, leading cattle to drink along the riverside and dangling fishing lines over the edge of small boats in hopes of catching something for dinner. Highlights of red pigment add brilliance to a grove of trees near the middle of the scroll. The detail work in the trees is spectacular, with twisted and knotted trunks that seem to refuse to stand upright, but bend against gravity, in some cases revealing networks of tangled roots.

Nara (D)

Saitô Kiyoshi

This scene has two trees and some logs jutting vertically out of the ground in the foreground, with some buildings and a figure walking in the background. The tree on the left in the foreground has a split trunk, and we can see some roots. The four logs are spaced fairly evenly in the center of the foreground, and the second tree is on the right in the foreground and leans to the right. Some leaves can be seen on the trees at the top of the scene. The ground in the background is white, and the figure walks in front of the buildings in the center right of the scene. The main and tallest roofline of the buildings is in the center of the background.

Landscape (Untitled)

Herman Herzog

This painting depicts a lush green countryside with an expanse of blue sky. It shows a hillside overlooking a small lake. There is a vista of fields and hills that extends beyond the lake to the horizon.

In the foreground, a woman wearing a long dress and a bonnet and carrying a walking stick and basket, walks toward the viewer along a dirt path. The path runs from a building on the far left toward the bottom of the painting. The vegetation is painted in sharp detail in dark tones of green and brown.

In the right half of the composition, there is a scene of a distant village and farms viewed through the trees on the edge of the hillside. In contrast to the shadowy wooded area, the view is bathed in bright sunlight. There is a lone bird in flight in the light blue sky that fills the top half of the painting.
