Simply drawn buildings on the riverbank in the lower left corner of the composition are dwarfed by large windblown trees growing from a foreground promontory. A narrow bridge connects the elements in the lower left with a small tip of land at the lower right and, compositionally, leads the viewer into the distance, which is dominated by light blue mountain peaks. The asymmetrical composition is based on traditions developed during the Southern Song period and usually associated with Ma Yuan (active 1189-1224) and Xia Gui (active 1194-1224).
