"Fall Mountains for Kuo Shi", 2001 by Michael Mazur, American, born 1935, oil on canvas, Bowdoin College Museum of Art, 2008.10.a-c

Fall Mountains for Kuo Shi, a triptych painting by Michael Mazur, is an homage to the Chinese landscape painting tradition. In his past fifty years of activity, Mazur has explored the bounds of realism, expressionism, and most recently, abstraction. He has been the recipient of numerous national awards, and his work is featured in collections including those of the Museum of Modern Art, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Whitney Museum of American Art, and the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.
