    The painting is dedicated to Meipu (梅圃), who may be Shu Nan (舒柟), who used the courtesy name Meipu. It was said the two met in Jiangxi Province when Zhao Zhiqian served as an official there. There are other calligraphic and painting works that were dedicated to Meipu, including a large and impressive painting of an ink pine in the collection of the Palace Museum in Beijing (www.dpm.org.cn/collection/paint/231473.html). There are also letters exchanged between Meipu and Zhao Zhiqian, such as a group of letters sold at China Guardian, Beijing, 23 November 2010, lot 4329. All these works suggest a close relationship between the artist and Shu Meipu. The peach is a symbol of longevity and prosperity. The painting would have been an appropriate birthday gift from the artist to Shu Meipu.

    從題跋可知,本幅為題獻"梅圃"之作。該"梅圃"或為舒柟(字梅圃)。據説二人在趙之謙任職江西時相識。趙之謙其他作品中亦常有題獻梅圃之作,如北京故宮博物院所藏巨幅《墨松圖》。趙、舒二人間亦有書信存世,其中一批曾現身於中國嘉德2010年11月23日秋季拍賣會上。足見二人關係密切。蟠桃象徵長壽,因此本扇面或為趙之謙為舒梅圃賀壽之作。
