A fine and large blue and white brush pot, bitong
The very slightly waisted sides finely painted with a continuous scene of a scholar seated in an open pavilion watching a woman seated on the ground beneath, both observed by a demonic figure and an elderly sage, supported on dense, swirling clouds over the water, all amidst a mountainous riverscape with overhanging willow and wutong trees, the composition bisected on one side by cliffs and swirling cliffs, enclosed above and below by bands of incised clouds, the slightly recessed base unglazed.
