Inscriptions

Artist’s poem: 遠樹平沙帶落暉,汀蘆獵獵晚風微。虛堂自領青山色,艇子湖頭醉未歸。 成化二年十月六日歸自石湖。船牕多暇戲,倣雲林筆意,作此小景,竝系以詩。沈周。 Far trees and flat sand are clothed in fading light; The lu grass on the land-spits rustles in the late faint wind; An empty house becomes the color of the mountain; While for the boatman at the lake’s head Intoxication--still no return. (trans. Richard Edwards) "When on the boat coming back from Stone Lake, I had a good deal of leisure time, and so for my amusement I imitated the brush and spirit of Yunlin [Ni Zan] by painting this small scroll and adding a poem." (trans. Stephen Little) Colophons by Yang Mengjian 楊孟堅, Cheng Keze. Seals of Qian Konan, Yang Mengqian (1612), Cheng Keze (1680), Wang Hungxu (1645-1723), Pang Yuanji.
