Why this is a
Masterpiece

This painting of the mountains in the South of China, with the fog hiding the landscape all around is a very realistic view, but at the same time an idealistic view. There are only some details still visible -- two bent pines, a small stone table, three peaks in the distance, and five cranes flying over. The artist has painted a world clear and quiet, populated with old things in which light and dark, stillness and motion, silence and sound, man and nature are on balance.
