Signature: Inscribed by the artist:
Juran's Lofty Scholar among Streams and Mountains came out of the palace and entered the collection of the Minister of Works, Liu Jingzhong. I saw it when I was in Changan [i.e. the capital]; now I don't know into whose hands it has passed. [The painting shows a scholar] seated at his ease by a window; I have sketched the idea, but have not sought [to replicate] its external likeness.
