Thatched Stone Huts on a Snowy Mountain
This painting evokes an open feeling of ease upon first glance. In that initial moment, it seems one does not discover anything specific in the painting. As the colors of black, white, green, and red give rise to a sense of comfort, the spirit of the painting slowly emerges.
Only upon closer examination of the charm and sentiments conveyed by the painting does one discover that it seems to portray a lofty space, high in the universe. Thatched stone huts appear faintly on the plateau of the cliff. They resemble the homes of gods. The more one views this painting, the more one is able to sense its refreshing qualities of elegance and purity. This is a painting in the “ Weiyin ” style.
These impressionist paintings have reached such a high level that if any small portion of the full painting were isolated, it would be an exquisite impressionist painting in and of itself. These paintings express a dreamy, illusory state, and any small part of them can be enlarged to form its own beautiful, aesthetically enjoyable painting.
