Catalogue Note

Artist's inscription:
Mr. Yuetang asked for one my paintings, but I didn’t yet have the chance to give him any. For several days it has been overcast and rainy, and I couldn’t go out. So I found some good paper, wielded the brush, and produced this album of sixteen leaves. As soon as the weather cleared, I carried it and gave it to him to assuage my feelings of remorse.

Gu Heqing's inscription:
Light rain continued for several evenings, and as a result I didn’t see Zhang Yin for three days. This morning was clear, so I planned to visit him, but he happened by first. We had some tea, and we conversed a bit. Then out of his sleeve he pulled a small sixteen-leaf album to show me, saying that he just finished it to give to my cousin, Yuetang. I loved how each painting was so fine, how it gathered together all the great accomplishments of painters since the Yuan and Ming dynasties. I too have expressly carried out studies of these lineages, but my results were inferior to Zhang Yin’s paintings. If he hadn’t said that he intended to give the album to a friend, I would have snatched it away from him. Instead, I wrote an afterword for him to express my admiration.
