Footnotes

  • 民國 粉彩山水圖瓷板 「汪野亭」款

    款識: 客路青山下,行舟綠水前,潮平兩岸闊,風正一帆懸。己未(1919)夏月望日汪野亭寫。
    印文: 野亭、汪平、藏古

    The inscription may be translated as:

    The travellers route, beneath the verdant mountains;
    The floating boat approaches green waters,
    A peaceful lake, vast between the two shores,
    The wind blows enough to fill one hanging sail.
    Written by Wang Yeting in summer in jiwei year.
