Guo Xi, a native of Honan province, entitled this work "Early Spring" and signed it "Painted by Guo Hsi in the jen-tzu year (1072)." Coming after "Travelers Among Mountains and Streams" by Fan Kuan, this is one of the Museum's masterpieces of Northern Sung monumental landscape painting. Fan Kuan represented the solemn and eternal features of the mountains, while Guo captured the essence of spring with his evanescent and atmospheric use of ink washes. With "cloud-head" texture strokes for the mountain forms and "crab-claw" ones for the trees, the landscape in this painting seems to almost pulsate, flow, and disappear (only to reappear again), suggesting the hidden forces of Nature and the cosmos at work.
