    The close relationship between Pan Gongshou and Wang Wenzhi is evinced by the numerous collaborative works by the two artists. Both were natives of Dantu (near modern day Zhenjiang, Jiangsu province), and the majority of their joint efforts are dated to the last years of the Qianlong era, after Wang Wenzhi had retired from civil service. Whereas most of their collaborations feature the paintings of Pan Gongshou accompanied by Wang Wenzhi's calligraphy, this couplet is distinctive for being an entirely calligraphic piece.
