This painting was once attributed to Gao Keming, an artist at the Imperial Painting Academy in the early eleventh century, thanks to an inscription written in the style of the Song emperor Lizong (r. 1225–64) at the beginning of the scroll. The style of the painting, however, with its convincing treatment of diagonal recession, use of the "ax-cut" texture strokes of Li Tang (ca. 1070–ca. 1150), and broad sweeps of ink wash on the eroded riverbanks, indicates a late-twelfth-century date.
