Nota del catálogo

The design on the present vase illustrates the more quiet and orderly manner of decorating porcelains introduced at the imperial kilns during the early part of the Ming dynasty. The soft copper-red tones characteristic of Hongwu porcelains was well-suited to this new style. As noted by Liu Xinyuan, significant numbers of copper-red decorated porcelains were produced but only few were successfully fired due to the difficulties in controlling the copper-red pigment, see Liu Xinyuan, 'A Study of Early Ming and Yongle Imperial Porcelains excavated at Zhushan, Jingdezhen', in Imperial Hongwu and Yongle Porcelain excavated at Jingdezhen, Taipei, 1996, p. 52.

While the decorative repertoire of early Ming porcelains with painted designs was limited to formal flower motifs and ornamental borders that covered the surface in an orderly pattern, many of the designs retain a quality of independant robustness with a different style unrepeated in later periods. Within the body of underglaze-red painted Hongwu porcelains, the present vase is unsual as the body is boldly painted with the flowers of the four seasons, chrysanthemum, lotus, peony and pomegranate, all issuing from rockwork and enfolded in luscious foliage. While most vases of this type and period are decorated around the body with a continuous design of meandering lotus or peony flowers, few examples are actually painted with floral designs incorporating rockwork or different flowers. Compare, for example, a vase of the same form decorated with the three friends of winter similarly issuing from rockwork, formerly in the Qing court collection, illustrated in The Complete Collection of Treasures of the Palace Museum. Blue and White Porcelain with Underglazed Red, vol. I, Hong Iong, 2008, pl. 199. The design involving lotus, chrysanthemum and peony issuing from rockwork more commonly appears on large dishes of the period, compare an impressive example also from the Qing court collection, illustrated ibid., pl. 211. For a discussion on this vase type and the different design painted on it, see, John Addis, 'A Group fo Underglazed Red', in Transactions of the Oriental Ceramic Society, vol. 31, 1957-1959, pl. 4c.
