This painting, formerly attributed to the leading court artist Ma Yuan, repeats the motifs and brushwork for which Ma was famous. A scholar seated beneath a great pine tree holds a zither in his lap, while a young attendant dozes nearby. Although the work lacks the psychic energy of Ma Yuan's paintings, the relaxed yet forceful round brushwork suggests the hand of an early and close follower of the master.
