This painting, bearing the forged seal of the late Yuan scholar-artist Wang Meng (ca. 1308–1385), is clearly a later interpretation of the Wang Meng style, probably done in the second half of the sixteenth century by someone working in Suzhou in a manner that is closer to that of Wen Boren (1502–ca. 1575) than Wang Meng.
