The Southern Song artist, eschewing the Northern Song monumental landscape traditions of "a hundred peaks and ten thousand trees," viewed nature through the microcosm of a single pair of trees and one or two rocks suspended in an infinite void. In this scene of unbounded space, vigorous wet-ink lines and dots against broad flat sweeps of ink wash define forms with startling boldness.
