拍品資料及來源

The design of the present lot is inspired by nature and archaism, its softy rounded edges imitating the bamboo or cane furniture seen in Song Dynasty painting. The use of a rare and expensive hardwood in imitation of a humbler material speaks to the high-minded refinement expected of a Ming scholar. For further discussion see Ronald Longsdorf, "Chinese Bamboo Furniture, Its History and Influence on Hardwood Furniture Design", Orientations, January 1994, pp. 76-83.
