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).
