“洞天山堂”（Taoist Temple in the Mountains）
This painting is “Taoist temple in the mountains”. This painting has mountains, trees, rocks, bridge and temple. All of mountains, trees and rocks are covered by clouds. There are three gentlemen standing on a bridge. They are seem to enjoy the sound of the murmuring stream.
Tung Yuan is a famous landscape painter of the Southern T’ang. Tung Yuan’s major contribution was the final perfection of the modelling brushstroke, which is basic to Chinese landscape painting. He was a principal innovator of hemp fiber brush stroke. This technique gives third dimensional effects in the treatment of rocks.
I chose “Taoist temple in the mountains” because fogs around the peaks is particularly interesting. Some of trees are barely revealing their tops above the floating clouds. This painting conveys a sense of peacefulness.
