 See Original Kakemono and Makimono List, L. 545, Freer Gallery of Art and Arthur M. Sackler Gallery Archives. While the Freer files only identify the source of this painting as “Count Akimoto, Tokyo,” given the date of purchase (1907), the most likely individual is Akimoto Okitomo (1857–1917), who at the time held the hereditary rank of viscount (see Object Documentation, Song and Yuan Dynasty Painting and Calligraphy [http://www.asia.si.edu/SongYuan/]).
 See note 1.
 The original deed of Charles Lang Freer's gift was signed in 1906. The collection was received in 1920 upon the completion of the Freer Gallery.
