Ink painting on silk. Title: Landscape with Rainstorm. Unknown artist, formerely attributed to Jiang Guandao, 江貫道 (Chiang Kaun-tao). The style is that of the Zen Buddhist school of Impressionistic landscape painting which was at its height in the 13th Century. In this landscape, the peeks among the clouds and the trees in the mist all contribute toward the haziness of a stormy scene. Rock stylized which betrays its late date. Trees are interestingly depicted but the brushes and moss are poorly done. Eight red owners' seals, most of which are of Mr. Pang Yuanji, collector.
