Commentary
This looks like a genuine painting by the Qing dynasty artist Wang Yun. Wang Yun was a very well-known professional artist during the Kangxi era (1662-1722) and was friends with artistic luminaries such as Wang Hui and Yang Jin. There are excellent details in the figures in this autumn landscape scene. This is a very high quality work,

Professor Kathleen Ryor, Carleton College
