  • 二十世紀 粉彩雪景棒球瓶 「何許人」款

    款識: 豪氣衝寒雪浪開, 騎驢蹴踏小橋來, 梅蒼嶺互馨香滿, 折得旋歸助酒醅。時在甲戌(1934)季秋月,鍾藩先生法鑒。陽谷許人何處畫於湓浦。

    印文: 許人、何處、許人出品

    He Xuren (1882-1940) is known to be a member of the 'Eight Friends of Zhushan'.

    The inscription may be translated as:

    The heoric spirit battles the cold, the waves of snow thaw;
    Riding a donkey, we slowly trod towards a small bridge,
    The plum blossom and blue mountains together fill the air with a strong and pervasive fragrance;
    I turn around and return to help with the wine!
    In autumn of the jiaxu year,
    appreciated by the intellectual Zhong Fan,
    painted by He Xuren at Penpu.
