The traditional Chinese painting A Thousand Li of Rivers and Mountains by Wang Ximeng of the Northern Song Dynasty (960-1127), ink and pigment on silk, 1191.5 cm in length and 51.5 cm in width, is in the collection of the Palace Museum.

At 18 years old, Wang Ximeng (about 1096-1115), dedicated the painting to Emperor Huizong of the Song Dynasty and won recognition.

The painting is Wang’s only work to have survived to this day. Rendered with mineral green and mineral blue, the work shows the magnificent picture of 1,000-li landscapes, depicting ridges, peaks and waterside pavilions to illustrate magnificent and changeable prospects.

It is a masterpiece of ancient Chinese blue and green landscape painting.
