In the study, the scholars sat on the couch, behind which there was a landscape screen, and on both sides there was a waiter and a waitress. In the painting, the master is dressed in a Taoist costume, with his right foot bent and left foot propped up, his right hand leaning against the pedestal and his left hand holding the paper, as if he were writing. This is a common posture of the Buddhist figure Vimalakirti, by which the scholars of the Song Dynasty shaped their personal images. The screen in the painting is similar to the landscape style of Ni Zan. According to Zhang Yu’s praise, this is the portrait of Ni Zan. Zhang Yu’s praise of the title can directly reveal his internal air from the external image, which is just a reference to the portrait. Zhang Yu, Ni Zan and Huang Gongwang are both Taoist friends, and Zhang Yu once wrote about Huang Gongwang’s portrait.
