Description:
On the lower left of the painting is a hill dotted with trees of various autumn shades of red and yellow. A copse of green Asian pines rest atop the hill, and around it winds a road on which two men of the gentry are riding astride donkeys. Water fills the middle ground, winding up to the background, where faint blue imprints of mountains float above the horizon. Two small sailboats are passing by the center of the water. On the left are two figures, crossing a little bridge that leads to a group of straw-roofed houses. This village is clustered near the base of the large mountains looming on the upper left, also dotted with the red of fall leaves. A seal and inscription of the artist, and a poetic couplet describing the scene, are placed in the upper right corner. The whole painting is framed by an inch-wide, emerald green, patterned silk.
