This picture is just one part of Huang Gongwang’s masterpiece scroll painting “The Scenery of Fuchun River crosses Our Hometown Tonglu County”. Huang Gongwang was one of the "four famous painters in Yuan Dynasty". After the creation of “The Scenery of Fuchun River crosses Our Hometown Tonglu County”, collectors all took it as a treasure. In Qing Dynasty, collector Wu Hongyu loved the painting so much that even wanted to take it to his afterlife when he was dying.

The small section is now known as the "Leftover Mountain" volume and is collected in the Museum of Zhejiang province. This painting is the large section, also known as "Painting by Wu Yongshi". This work was completed by Huang Gongwang at the age of seventy-nine for his friend Zheng Chu who was a Taoist. The painting depicts Fuchun River scenery in Zhejiang province.
