Visual Description :
This is a traditional Chinese landscape scene that appears to have been printed for mass production. The compostion has been designed using black outlines that are filled predominantly with three colour washes, yellow, red, and green. A building in the left foreground appears to be built over water; through the window one can see a vessel and what may be a letter resting on a table. In the midground pines and a building, perhaps a palace, are depicted. Mountains and sky create the background.
