Signature: The inscription describes Wang Hui's inspiration:
"Some years ago I was a guest in the capital, where, at the home of a collector, I was able to see a great many scrolls by ancient men. Among them were two paintings: Juran's 'River Pass on a Clearing Morning' and Yan Wengui's 'Fishing near a Mountain Pass.' Their divine color was magnificent and each was extremely refined and marvelous, among the best of all the famous works of the Song and Yuan. Suddenly, after more than twenty years, they have come to my breast. This scroll was made by combining the two masters' general concepts. Although in purity, truth, and subtle blandness it is not close to them, in its style it is not very far."
