Physical description
This landscape depicts rising towering peaks surrounded by mist created by the blank surface of the silk. At the bottom and beginning of the landscape, a scholar is riding a horse followed by two attendants carrying his luggage. They are travelling towards his home and a servant is opening the gate waiting for them. In the mountain near the top of the landscape are temples. The landscape of mountains and trees is painted [written] with very spontaneous and expressive calligraphic brushstrokes, in the tradition of scholar-amateur or literati paintings.
