Footnotes

  • The colophons on the landscape paintings are the九曲棹歌 the Jiuqu Zhaoge ('The Oar song of the Nine Bends') by the Song Neo-Confucian Zhu Xi 朱熹each describing a different bend of 'The Nine Bend River' of Wuyi mountain.

    武夷山上有仙靈,山下寒流曲曲清。
    欲識個中奇絕處,棹歌閑聽兩三聲。
      一曲溪邊上釣船,幔亭峰影蘸晴川。
      虹橋一斷無消息,萬壑千岩鎖翠煙。
      二曲亭亭玉女峰,插花臨水爲誰容。
      道人不作陽臺夢,興入前山翠幾重。
      三曲君看駕壑船,不知停棹幾何年。
      桑田海水兮如許,泡沫風燈敢自憐。
      四曲東西兩石岩,岩花垂露碧監毿。
      金雞叫罷無人見,月滿空山水滿潭。
      五曲山高雲氣深,長時煙雨暗平林。
      林間有客無人識,矣乃聲中萬古心。
      六曲蒼屏繞碧灣,茆茨終日掩柴關。
      客來倚棹岩花落,猿鳥不驚春意閑。
      七曲移舟上碧灘,隱屏仙掌更回看。
      卻憐昨夜峰頭雨,添得飛泉幾道寒。
      八曲風煙勢欲開,鼓樓岩下水縈回。
      莫言此地無佳景,自是遊人不上來。
      九曲將窮眼豁然,桑麻雨露見平川。
      漁郎更覓桃源路,除是人間別有天。
