View of buildings and trees after a rain shower

Pan Dinglan was born at Changning near Huizhou, Guangdong province. Little is known of his life; he is reputed to have been good at calligraphy, landscape and figure painting. The inscription on this painting reads: ‘After a light shower on the blue mountain, it becomes clear in the evening; the trees are layers upon layers, from which develops the atmosphere of a painting. [I] still remember years ago [when I spent] the nights in school, there were lights at the window and the sounds of recitation’.
