Catalogue Note

The poetic inscription can be translated as ‘Like a retreat scholar resting in a snowy mountain’. It is a phrase adapted from the poem Yong Mei [Praising the Prunus], composed by the Ming-dynasty poet Gao Qi (1336-1373), who metaphorically allude the blossom with an aloof and honourable intellect in seclude. The inscription is signed Shushi ju (Studio of Bamboo and Rock), a known hallmark associated with a group of porcelain wares from the Kangxi period.
