Chinese term or phrase: 絹地立幅
山水畫為絹地立幅,青綠山水,縱154.2釐米,橫54.5釐米。主題內容為描繪中國封建文人士大夫的隱逸生活,為中國古代山水畫的傳統題材。

The painting was vertical and made on a silk ground/support.

Is this accurate?

Thanks.

hanging scroll
Explanation:
The dimensions will tell the reader that the scroll is taller than it is long. The word doesn't really exist in English, so it's more natural to just call it a hanging scroll.

The landscape painting is a silk hanging scroll, 154.2cm long by 54.5cm wide, in the blue-and-green style.
