Winter Landscape. Artist unknown. Great rocks of strange form tower above a snow covered valley, and below, on the edge of a lake, may be seen a group of pavilions built on piles in the shallow water. The snow lies heavy on their roofs. Two fisherman have drawn near in their boat and are offering their catch to a philosopher who stands in one of the pavilions. In the foreground an old pine tree spreads its snowy branches above the lake. In the Zhe school style. Formerly in the collection of John Calvin Ferguson (1866 - 1945 CE).
