Huizong, given name Zhao Ji, was an artistic emperor gifted at the "Three Perfections" of poetry, calligraphy, and painting. He established a Painting Academy for the complete study of painting at the court, using lines of poetry for painting subjects to recruit and select artists of talent. He also paid attention to observing things as they appear in nature. This combination of painting theories fusing painting and calligraphy as well as "sketching from life" had a deep and lasting influence on the development of Chinese painting. This work may have been one of eight screen paintings by Huizong mentioned in Record of Paintings Stored in the Revival Halls of the Song, "Fragrant Plum Blossoms and Wild Bulbul." With its lyrical and painterly manner, the refined use of brush and ink expresses the characteristics of the scenery, and the composition is succinct and designed into an "S"-shaped arc. In addition to "sketching from life," great pain was taken to create aesthetic forms and an idealized realm of the pure and crisp atmosphere on a winter's day.
