Conversing Midway up the Mountain in Late Autumn

Zha Jizuo (Cha Chi-tso)

A small gathering of buildings is nestled at the bottom of a tall, rounded mountain range. Slightly above the settlement, two travelers make their way along the mountain path. A few trees crow up out of the mountains. The mountain range near the small village cuts diagonally across the picture plane, from bottom left to middle right. The top left of the image also contains mountains, taller still. Across from these on the top right is calligraphic text and two seals.

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.
