Small landscape with inscription. Zhu Shilin is recorded in a dictionary of artists' names, but little more is known about him. That source mentions his reputation in calligraphy-specifically his seal script-and says nothing about other subjects, but this small landscape is evidence for his skill in that genre. In this small space, the artist has created a feeling of great scale and distance, of a vast vista that spreads to the horizons beyond the mass of the mountain. This is a more successful and integrated landscape than a casual painter might accomplish.
