This mountain landscape has integrated traditional Chinese landscape painting with 20th century Western style painting. Compared to his later landscapes, this painting is done with more subdued colours of green and blue and pink, very much in the tradition of Chinese blue and green landscapes of the court academy style since the Tang dynasty (AD 618-906). The mountain forms are accentuated and outlined by the traditional calligraphic brushstrokes in black ink. As in traditional Chinese landscapes, the blank areas of the painting evoke clouds and mists and running streams. A village of houses is nestled in the mountains. Two contemporary figures are walking along a stream and as in traditional Chinese landscape paintings, the figures are very small.
