Kuncan (1612-1673) was a renowned monk painter and calligrapher hailing from Wuling, Hunan province, during the early Qing dynasty (1644-1911). His works were characterized by intricate brushwork, bold and powerful strokes, and a talent for dry brushwork shading.

This painting by Kuncan, White Clouds at the Mountain Valley, features a steady and mature composition with distant mountains depicted using dry brushwork shading. The foreground depicts lush grass and trees with swirling mists, vividly creating a verdant and majestic landscape atmosphere.
