Gift of the Hanna Fund 1953.126
Streams and Mountains without End was a landmark acquisition of 1953, made just a year after Sherman Lee had returned to Cleveland as curator of Oriental art. He acquired it with the intention to provide "a more than adequate foundation for a fine collection of Chinese landscape painting." This impressive work demonstrates the culmination of stylistic developments in Chinese monumental landscape painting following the Northern Song tradition. It represents a journey through a landscape, making it a fitting metaphor for Lee’s journey of discovery and achievement over a lifetime.
