Inscription: Artist’s inscription and signature (3 columns in standard script)
Painted by Weishan, Guangweizi, Zhang Yucai.
1. Yongxing 永瑆 (1752–1823), 6 columns in standard script, dated 1816:
Qian Weishan (active mid-14th c.) included in his personal anthology, Jiangyue songfeng ji, a poem inscribed on Ascending Dragon painted by Celestial Master Guangwei [Zhang Yucai], which reads:
Breathing the air, riding the clouds, it reaches to the sky.
The ink master works magic; his inkstone smacks of aquatic creatures.
The waves shine, as the pair of swords submerge;
The storm darkens, as the six goddesses [of thunder and lightening] are dispatched.
Flames of fire dart skywards;
Green scales dive in, raising turbulence in the vast sea.
The man of perfect cultivation, carried up along the way, turns immortal;
How can I cling to [the dragon’s] whiskers to cross the Dongting [Lake]?
Recorded by Prince Cheng [Yongxing] on the fifth of the second lunar month in the bingzi year of the Jiaqing reign era [March 3, 1816].
