Description

delicately painted with an idyllic lakeside scene of elegant studios and pavilions overlooking the water, surrounded by jagged rockwork and twisting trees all enameled in shades of green and blue, the tips of the leaves turning yellow and pink, the lake with a sampan amidst the calm waters left unenameled save for the seafoam-green ripples, tall jagged mountains rising vertically above and around, the depth conveyed through the skillful use of paler enamels, negative space, and washes of grisaille, a waterfall cascading down one cliff face and a small thatched pavilion above a jagged slope in the distance, the sky left plain and inscribed with a poetic verse reading Jietian yanlang lai sanxia yingshui loutai bie yijia (enshrouded by waves of mist, the gorges unveil; reflected by the water, a pavilion stands), followed by an inscription yihaizhiqiu zhiyu Zhushan guanshe (made at the Zhushan official residence in the autumn of the yihai year), accompanied by three seals reading pianshi, tao and zhu, all within a wood frame, the reverse with a Japanese gilt-lacquered temple scene
