This is a double sided folding screen of landscapes. The six panels of landscapes have rocks and human figures on the foreground and landscapes as background. Both the rocks and the mountains are painted so they get darker as they rise up. The painting on the opposite side has the Eight Views of Xiaoxiang on the bottom, birds and flowers on the middle, and mountain peaks painted like a watercolor painting on the top. This is an important piece that shows us how folding screens looked like at the time, as it still retains the original framing.
