Ma Yuan was a court painter during the reigns of the Southern Song emperors Guangzong and Ningzong. He tended to place landscape scenery in one corner of his paintings, which is why he was called "One-corner Ma." Of equal fame as his contemporary at court, Hsia Kuei, they became known together as "Ma-Hsia." In this work, Ma Yuan has created a scene that seamlessly blends the activities of figures with the landscape, creating a naturally lyrical and painterly atmosphere. Distant mountains are enveloped in the boundless evening mist, which also partially blocks out the large pines and bamboo grove. In the foreground is an ornamented hall where figures have gathered for a banquet in celebration of the New Year. Craggy branches of the plum trees surround the courtyard in front, where palace ladies hold lamps to form a circle as they dance, adding a lofty air of elegance to the work. Southern Sung painters often emphasized the integration of naturalness and lyricism in an intentional attempt to express the subtleties of art and nature, this work being a typical and excellent example of such.
