This fan-shaped painting, now mounted as a hanging scroll, was once part of a set of 20 mounted on a folding screen. It portrays the Chinese scholar-official Pan Lang. He grew so fond of the mountain in his place of exile that when he was ordered back to the capital, he rode backward on his donkey so he could see it until it receded into the distance. The painting bears the seal of the Kanto-based artist Shikibu Terutada. Shikibu was familiar with Kano school painting, but he also modeled his early style after that of the prominent Kanto-based Kenko Shokei (active about 1470â€“after 1523).
