Description

Mountain Pavilion. Artist unknown. Album piece. The composition with cottage studio on the seemingly reachable foreground, demystified river, outgrown trees, plain mountains has unmistakably Qing flavor. Brushwork is not too bad. Formerly in the collection of John Calvin Ferguson (1866 - 1945 CE).
