‘Pines and Peaks’

Pines and Peaks

Pines and peaks contend in fantastic appearance; A house sits on the steep cliff. Just as clouds shift from dark to light, everything keeps changing; Even the rainmaker cannot stop this. Only the Heavenly Citadel and Lotus Peaks [of Mount Huang] have this appearance, which is not something that can be captured by the man-made Six Principles [of painting]. I casually emulate their general likeness. Dai Benxiao (Chinese, 1621–1693) @ The Metropolitan Museum of Art
