Inscription: Artist’s inscriptions and signatures
Leaf BB (3 columns in semi-cursive script, dated 1630):
These two landscapes embody the essence of Ni Yuanzhen’s [Ni Zan, 1306–1374] painting. Painted in the sixth lunar month of the gengwu year  while staying in Gusu [Suzhou].
Leaf D (3 columns in standard script):
Solitary Temple amid Streams and Mountains in imitation of Juran’s [active 10th c.] brushwork. Xuanzai
Leaf E (2 columns in standard script):
Lofty Scholar in a Mountain Retreat. Xuanzai
Leaf G (5 columns in standard script):
Smoke from chimneys merges into lingering mist,
Revealing a glimpse of a pavilion by the pines.
In the pavilion is a man who has attained tranquility,
Reading the Vimalakirti sutra by himself.
Leaf H (2 columns in semi-cursive script, dated 1630):
On the ninth day of the ninth lunar month of the gengwu year  I painted these eight scenes. The seventy-six-year-old man.
Leaf HH (6 columns in semi-cursive script):
Since the fourth month of the dingchou year , when I started learning to paint, until the gengwu year , fifty-two years have passed. Although the quality of my painting has not been evaluated with certainty, the time I have spent is long, longer than any other painter. In ancient times, the Buddha preached the dharma for forty-nine years, yet still it was said that the Wheel of the Law had not been fully turned. How could I be any different? So there must people who think [definitive] Dong painting has yet to appear. Xuanzai
