The poem inscribed by Luo Hui on this painting reads:
The sunset's shimmering rays weave and
twist following the sail;
Receding mountain light sets off the pagoda.
As one looks up from the river,
The water continues to flow unattended.
[Trans. adapted from Ellsworth et all, Later Chinese Painting]
The literatus Dong Qichang is invoked in the inscription as the source for Luo's style, but the painting embodies more a 19th century notion of the "picturesque" than Dong's intellectual style.
