Contemporary painting, ca 1980's, of a majestic mountain landscape done in Chinese ink & watercolors on Chinese paper. The artist Pei Biao painted this contemporary painting with a close understanding of traditional Chinese landscape paintings. There are several very small human figures on a rocky shoreline under trees near 2 boats at anchor. Above all of that is an extraordinary mountainous landscape. The 2 mountains in the middle distance are huge rocky majestic forms. In the back the scene recedes in the traditional style of Chinese paintings which uses overlapping planes to describe and define distance rather than perspective. So the whole painting, though painted in a very contemporary style, is well within the traditional artistic conventions.
