Footnotes

  • Yu Guoliang (1874-1939) is also known as Zulin. The inscription was incised by songdaoren, pseudonym of Ren Ganting. For an introduction on Ren Ganting, see lot 635. The painter with literary name 'Nantian laoren' was Yun Shouping (1633-1690) of the Qing dynasty. Yun was noted for his paintings of birds and flowers in a 'boneless' (mogu) manner, emphasising washes instead of lines. His landscape paintings also have distinctive characteristics. This brushpot was probably made by Yu Guoliang in the style of Ren Ganting modelled after Yun Shouping.
