The Yuan dynasty painter Huang Gongwang (1269-1354) was venerated by literati artists during the Ming and Qing period. Huang Gongwang's most famous work, a long handscroll entitled Dwelling in the Fuchun Mountains, was frequently copied by later artists, particularly 17th century painters of the orthodox school. Wang Hui painted several scrolls based on Huang Gongwang's composition, and this one is especially important since it preserves the beginning section now lost from the original. Although Wang Hui followed closely the composition and motives of the Yuan painting, the smooth brushstrokes and neat dots are the special characteristics of the painter's style. According to the inscription by his teacher, Wang Shimin, this unsigned work can be dated to 1672.
