“I have seen more than twenty paintings by the Woodcutter of Yellow Crane Mountain (Wang Meng). Among them we must regard the ‘Spring Dawn at Dantai’ in the collection of Wang Fengchang (Wang Shimin) and ‘Dwelling in the Mountains on a Summer Day’ in the collection of T’ang Xiaolian as the best. Those who exhaust one year in investigating them to the very end, all of its aspects in great detail, will then be known as experienced and marvelous hands, for common artists are unable to penetrate his profundities.”
