Why this is a
Masterpiece

It is a painting conventionally following the Five Dynasties (907-960) early landscape painting and the Northern Song (960-1127) style. It is an excellent example showing the tradition of combining painting and calligraphy techniques, dominant at the time of Yuan Dynasty rule. The style of the landscape is painted with a confident line that can be related to the post-Song current of writers painting.

Function
Decorative artwork. Inscription and seals indicate Zhang Xun as an artist. He was a little known Yuan painter who came from the present-day city of Suzhou. He specialized in monochrome bamboo painting. As time passed, he started to create landscapes, stylistically following such old masters as Dong Yuan and Juran (active in 10th century). 
Acquisition
It has been preserved in the National Museum in Warsaw since 1949. The provenience of the artwork is unknown due to historical events, e.g., during World War II when many artworks that belonged to private collectors or institutions were lost or dispersed all over the country.
