Colophons

1. Li Ruiqing 李瑞清 (1867–1920), 3 columns in semi-cursive script, undated; 1 seal:

陸包山先生隱支硎山,有明高士也。善畫人物、山水、花鳥,靡不工。余曾見余友蔣夢萍孝廉藏陸畫極夥,皆至精妙之品。有士女一幀,直可與錢舜擧雁行。其山水,平日雖青綠設色之作,五色爛然,然皆有枯逸冷峭之致。此幀獨雄渾古厚,不易得也。清道人題。 [印]: 清道人

2. Wu Changshuo 吳昌碩 (1844–1927), 5 columns in semi-cursive script, dated 1923; 1 seal:

山海天容近,星辰御筆縣。好詩酬一客,秋壑響重泉。
隱見懸瓢處,奇爭古隷邊。支硎吾借問,其奈變桑田。

癸亥華朝,八十老人吳昌碩 [印]: 老缶

3. Kang Youwei 康有爲 (1858–1927), 4 columns in semi-cursive script, dated 1924; 1 seal:

陸包山亦石田弟子,而畫體輕逸。此畫雄蒼,參用王叔明筆,乃石田派本色,然濃深固是佳作,況有高廟題詩,尤足珍也。甲子正月,天游化人康有爲 [印]:康有爲印

4. Chen Zengshou 陳曾壽 (1878–1949), 3 columns in semi-cursive script, undated; 2 seals:

包山此幅筆墨蒼健,直接董、巨,可見古人自有真實本領,無所不可。亦如衡山大筆,尤爲世重也。陳曾壽 [印]:陳曾壽印、蒼皅
