With sixteen seals of the artists


Huang Chun-pi was keen on observations and travels, which allowed him to paint landscapes in close resemblance, even to the spirit of nature. These four panels show tranquil scenes in four different seasons. Each scene shows an animated feature in subtlety, while matching with a selected poem by Chen Zi-he. Western perspective was used to create depth in the painting. The Spring scene shows a luscious scene with a fishing boat while the poem enhances the vibrancy by hints of drifting petals and ripples along the spring breeze. Summer noise of insects echoes with the smothering heat in the woods, while the warm and dry autumn is relieved by a distant waterfall. The harsh cold winter landscape is covered with a blanket of snow as the ice cracks beneath a sailing boat, chilling the spine of viewers.
