Blue-and-white plate with landscape design

Artist Unknown, Hizen ware, Japan

A medium size plate has blue-and-white underglaze painting of landscape. There are two groups of mountains; one of the left has two large rocks flanked by two smaller mountains with a few trees on the tops. Three smaller rocks peek from the water. On the right side, a range of gently sloped mountains and a rock are drawn. There are two fishing boats with masts can be seen in front of the mountain range. The crescent moon, shadowed by one side, is in the sky. The drawing is executed in thick underglaze and painted in lighter glaze. There are brown speckles on the surface; reddish color stains on the top of the rim. Some chips on the rim and on the back. The foot is unglazed; eye is glazed. There is a single band around the rim.

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.

The Student (L'Etudiante)

Gerome Kamrowski

On a narrow canvas a background of overlapping, rounded segments of blues, grays, and greens suggests rock. These layers build up to warmer colors, and on the surface of the layers are several shapes executed in white line suggestive of cave-painting. The shapes looks like microscopic organisms and are connected by the nerve-like white lines. As a whole, the visual elements are also suggestive of a seated figure, and the white shapes then appear as organs.

Spring Landscape

Nakanishi Kôseki

A lone man walks along a mountain path on the bottom left, hunched over perhaps under a load he carries. He seems to be approaching a hut along the water's edge partially blocked from the viewer by tall trees. The path continues to wind up the mountain, and spoked circular designs indicate what may be a series of bridges. Lines of calligraphy and seals are in the upper left corner.

Scholar's Winter Retreat

Gai Qi (Kai Ch'i)

A scholar sits in a relaxed posture at his desk looking at cut plum blossoms in a white vase; before him is an empty sheet of paper and ink stone, and by his side an attendant is boiling water for tea. A crane tucks her head and leg to keep herself warm in the cold winter air. The scholar seems to be contemplating a subject to be drawn or written, perhaps related to the flowers.

In the Mountain Fastness

Daniel Huntington

Dark landscape set atop a rocky mountain with sparse vegetation. There is a small boulder in the left foreground space with a dead tree standing beside it; in the right foreground there is what appears to be a small cave. A dead and broken tree lies across the bottom of the picture frame. There are mountains in the distance and a dark stormy sky above with a break in the clouds near the center of the canvas that reveals a sunny blue sky.
