Catalogue Entry

Large Vase with Chinese Ink is a substantial vase, illlustrating a painterly mountainside view. In the style of a Chinese Ink painting, mountains and shrubbery contrast against one another using a variety of shades of ink. Each brush stroke emphsizes the definition of each cliff and shrub, animating a layering affect and mountains that fade into the distance. 


The text at the top of the vase explains a drawing of watching the waterfall, the Xin Wei Year, and lastly that it was "created with a lot of blessings". In full, the text means that this drawing of the waterfall was finished in the Xin Wei Year, with lots of blessing in the process of the art creation. The text is translated from right to left.


景德鎮名窯小口瓶是一個堅固的花瓶,展示了山間的風景。在中國水墨畫的風格中,山和灌木經常以深淺不一的水墨相互對比。每個筆觸都強化了每個懸崖和灌木的線條,展現出分層效果及把消失在遠處的山脈動畫化。


花瓶頂部的文字詮釋為:「一幅觀看瀑布的圖畫,辛未年作,在多人的祝福下製造而成」。通俗地說,這幅瀑布圖是在辛未年完成的,而作者在藝術創作的過程中則得到了很多祝福,因此得以順利完成作品。文本是從右向左翻譯。
