Catalogue Note

The scene may depict the famous Tang dynasty general Guo Ziyi (697-781) accepting submission from a representative of an opposing army. The general was sent out to suppress the An Lushan rebellion and his reputation as a brilliant and successful commander preceded him, often producing an admission of defeat before a battle had begun. A famille-verte dish with related subject matter is in the Rijksmuseum, Amsterdam and illustrated in Christiaan J.A. Jörg, Famille Verte Chinese Porcelains in Green Enamels, Groninger Museum, Gronigen, cat. no. 74.
