Zhang Daqian painted this picture for the recipient when he met him while living in Carmel. The owner of the painting visited Zhang Daqian after the artist moved to Taiwan and the two remained friends throughout the artist’s life. Ha'te, who is still the owner of this painting, occasionally played guitar while the artist worked. This recollection inspired him to write:
As he painted, he was like a child dancing with unbridled glee.
Each stroke definite, but placed with such joy.
