T'ang Yin's painting style is extensive, encompassing that of the contemporaneous
Wu school literati painters as well as that in the manner of Li T'ang of the Sung
dynasty Imperial Painting Academy. This work is an example of the latter. A firm
sense of presence is imparted to the rocks depicted with abundant axe-cut texture
strokes used by Li T'ang, and the more refined colors render an elegant atmosphere
different from that of Li T'ang's works. This is a superb work ranked with "Soughing
Pines on a Mountain Path."
