This composition is based on a Chinese poem by Wang We (701-761), who was one of the most admired Tang Dynasty poets and painters. Many of his works take a Buddist perspective, and reflect his focus on Zen practice. He is able to combine love of nature with the philosophy of life. Su Shi (1037-1101), a Chinese litterateur and artist once said, "The quality of Wang Wei's poems can be summed as, the poems each hold a painting within them. In observing Wang Wei's paintings you can see that, within the painting there is poetry."
