This painting was a gift from the artist to the Governor of Jiangsu Province, and China, Mr. Liu Shunyuan. Liu was from Shandong Province, and was an enthusiast for Fu Baoshi's art works. Fu Baoshi, living in Nanjing, the captial of Liu Shunyuan's jurisdiction at that time, became friends with Liu.
