This painting was once attributed to Gao Keming, an artist at the Imperial Painting Academy in the early eleventh century, thanks to an inscription written in the style of the Song emperor Lizong (r. 1225–64) at the beginning of the scroll. The style of the painting, however, with its convincing treatment of diagonal recession, use of the "ax-cut" texture strokes of Li Tang (ca. 1070–ca. 1150), and broad sweeps of ink wash on the eroded riverbanks, indicates a late-twelfth-century date.
Inscription: No artist’s inscription, signature, or seal

Wu Kuan 吳寬 (1436–1504), 23 columns in semi-cursive script, undated; 1 seal:

赤腳真人龍鳳姿,俯視藝苑時游嬉。
良工待詔金門裏,高生前身應畫師。
含豪吮墨立良久,自言臣是唐王維。
平生胸中無一物,獨有山水能容之。
郭熙成名乃新進,范寬得意纔並馳。
丹青競巧稱院體,後來不比宣和時。
密竹千岡松萬壑,蒼翠峰巒白湖濼。
岸傍桂楫何處移,磵曲茆堂是誰縛?
行人暮歸天漠漠,遙望前村愁雪落。
船頭一老自閑暇,詩思分明入寥廓。
劉侯朝囘過燕市,亦復愛畫入骨髓。
偶從太僕得此圖,每一開之心輒喜。
天全僲翁[徐有貞]惜題字,評品數行非侫史。
翁今已逝侯亦亡,兩洞庭荒渺湖水。
石田[沈周]多才從後起,況有佳兒好文事。
只今奇物欣有託,賦詩獨愧前人耳。
宋社久已屋,宋畫如有神。
劉侯地下勿長嘆,楚弓得失皆吾人。
