Signature: At the upper left corner of the panel a short inscription translated as follows:

Evening Glow on the Autumn Mountain
Horizontal composition is rare in stone painting because the dynamic breath [of the mountains] do not always connect. With expressive undulation in the mountain ranges, this stone [painting] captures the dynamic energy of a thousand li within the format of a few feet.

Inscribed by Boyuan.

Long oval relief seal mark: Ruan shi shi (From catalog card).
