Footnotes

  • 十八世紀 御製漆地嵌百寶花鳥題詩掛屏一對

    The style and quality of these panels compare favorably with those depicted in Nancy Berliner et al (2010) The Emperor's Private Paradise: Treasures from the Forbidden City Salem, MA: Peabody Essex Museum, pp 102-103 cat. 25. See as well ibid, passim for numerous other objects with similar quality and style hardstone overlay. Those published pieces all were meant to adorn the Juanqin Zhai, Qianlong's 'Studio of Exhaustion from Diligent Service' in a corner of the Forbidden City for him to enjoy towards the end of his career and through his subsequent assumption of the role of 'Emperor Emeritus' in 1795. In addition to imperial poems, the present lot is also inscribed with poems signed by the 18th century Manchu official Jin Jian, known for his poetry and assigned by Qianlong to the editing of the Siku Quanshu huiyao as well as other literary tasks throughout his long career.
