From the Metropolitan Museum website:
These landscape compositions are “picturesque” in a sense defined by a long tradition of landscape art in China. Huang’s means of defining form by delineating edges without texture patterning and recording with the hand what the eye traces, however, is a radical departure for Chinese painting. It proved an interim step for Huang Binhong on his road to a late landscape style in which the qualities of ink were again exploited and ink resumed its traditional place alongside brushline as the paired tools of description and expression.
