The horizontal ink-and-wash scroll painting "Dwelling in the Fuchun Mountains" is the magnum opus of renowned Yuan Dynasty painter Huang Gongwang (1269–1354). A native of Changshu, Jiangsu, Huang was revered as the first of the Four Great Masters of the Yuan, the other three being Wu Zhen, Ni Zan, and Wang Meng. Most of his paintings were devoted to the beautiful natural landscapes in the regions south of the lower reaches of the Yangtze River, including Fuyang, Zhejiang, where he spent the last years of his life.
This painting, with a precise layout, vivid strokes, and a profound meaning, depicted the enchanting scenery along both banks of the Fuchun River, and exerted a deep influence upon Chinese landscape paintings in the following generations. Unfortunately, the painting was burnt into two pieces in the early Qing Dynasty (1644-1911). Today, one piece is kept in the Zhejiang Provincial Museum in Hangzhou, while the other is preserved in the Palace Museum in Taipei.
