The artist’s inscription states that he painted this landscape in the style of Kao Kegong, who in turn followed Mi Fu’s and Mi Youren’s cloudy landscapes by applying layers of ink dots and washes to give texturing and shading to mountains. While the earlier Northern Song masters created their brush idioms to capture the impressionistic effects of nature, later followers adopted the ancient methods for creative improvisations.
