Travelers in Snow-Covered Mountains by Jing Hao, Five Dynasties (907-960)


Jing Hao was a Chinese landscape painter and theorist of the Five Dynasties and Ten Kingdom period in Northern China. His painting style is known as the Northern Landscape style; It strongly influenced the tradition of North Song painters. Despite his influence on the course of Northern Chinese paintings, few works produced by Jing have survived to the present day. Travelers in Snow-Covered Mountains, one of the surviving works bearing Jing Hao’s signature, was recovered during the excavation of a tomb, and exhibited at the Nelson-Atkins Museum in Kansas City, Missouri. Despite the signature, a number of art historians considered the painting too primitive to have been produced by Jing. Therefore attribution of this work remains a subject of academic dispute.
