    Pu Quan, who used the name Songchuang, he was a member of the Qing imperial family. His father Zai Ying, and brothers Pu Jin, Pu Jian, Pu Zuo were all competent painters. In 1928 he joined the Songfeng Painting Association, and in 1936 he became a member of the Chinese Painting Research Association, while he taught in the art department of Fu Jen Catholic University. After 1949, he worked as a researcher at the Central Research Institute of Culture and History, and a painter at the Beijing Art Academy.

    Although undated, this painting is likely to have been painted after 1949, when Pu Quan was a member of the Beijing Fine Art Academy. At that time, Pu Quan painted many works that were in keeping with the trends of the times, while incorporating the traditional style and techniques of Chinese painting, such as this one.

    溥佺,字松窗,清宗室。父載瀛及兄溥伒、溥澗、弟溥佐皆擅畫。一九二八年入「松風畫會」,一九三六年參加中國畫學研究會,並任教於輔仁大學美術系。一九四九年後,任中央文史館館員、北京畫院畫師。

    雖無紀年,但本幅應是溥佺在1949年後任職北京畫院時期的作品。當時,溥佺創作了大量像這樣結合中國畫傳統技法而又符合時代潮流的作品。
