Painted hanging scroll depicting summer and winter landscapes. The winter landscape is composed of high mountains and a narrow mountain path beginning from the bottom right edge of the painting and leading up toward the central right edge of the painting where two grass huts sit in the depth of the mountains. Three travelers riding horses enter from the lower right. There are snowy mountains and rocks on the left bank and there are gray horizontal brushes of ink in the sky.
