This painting is called 'Longevity as the Evergreens'. The famous painter, Dong Gao, painted under the same title that was included in Shiqu Baoji (sanbian) [The Precious Collection of the Stone Canal Pavilion (Third Volume)]. Although this was not Dong Gao's work, his influence is obvious. Looking closely at Dong Gao's works which are preserved in the National Palace Museum, Taipei, especially Albums of Flowers, there are many similarities, including theme, coloring, structure, composition, brush strokes. This work is supposed to be created by someone imitating Dong Gao. But the identity of the painter, whether he was a court painter at the same period as Dong Gao, or from a later period, remains unknown.
