The joy of the fish in the imperial pond

Kanɡ Ruijun

Xuanyao blue-and-white mackerel big open bowl, deep outside the wall, painting decoration outstanding eye-catching, soft light warm, degrading muscle, people can’t help but mind.No matter the patterns, the painters, the shapes, the sizes, and the inability of the world to come out of the right side, the Xuande Opening with the same fish and algae pattern is handed down, only two cases of Taipei Palace Museum can be compared, but the size is smaller.Although fish-algae pattern is a common Chinese porcelain decoration sample, but such a wonderful work of flower opening, between the ups and downs, reflect each other, as if the water glistening, painting swimming fish lifelike, true edify god.

In the last year of the Northern Song Dynasty, Liu Cai, a palace painter, painted fish, or thus created a style of painting fish and algae in the Song Dynasty.The author of Liu Cai’s works is one of the most famous paintings by Liu Cai (97:1926).Fish live in the water, it is not easy to look at the detail, so painting fish is more difficult than other birds.Fantasy but can catch a god marrow, draw fish to own, rare and precious.

In Zhuangzi, a Taoist classic, Zhuangzi (about 369-286 B. C.) and the Confucian Hui Zi are well-known for their witty debates about “the pleasure of fish”.Chuang Tzu saw the fish swimming in the water, called the fish’s happiness, Huizi asked, “Zi Fei fish, Anzhi fish’s happiness?””After repeated pleading,” Confucius said, “You An Zhi Yu Yue” cloud, known that I know and asked me, I know that the Haoshang also “knot.

Since then, the word “fish’s happiness” has become a symbol of carelessness, for a long time for Chinese literati, special implications, is not only a far-fetched dream, but also a hermit see through the world’s life.Although Xuanzong did not take Daoism as his own, Daoism was prevalent in the early Ming Dynasty, with the vassals advocating Taoism, causing criticism, courtiers playing a number of times, and seeking a ban on Daoism (Richard G. Wang, “The Ming Prince and Daoism. Institutional Patterns of an Elite”, Oxford,2012).

It is enough to leave behind the Taoist doctrine of Utopia and to look only at the beauty of this opening.The god draws abundant fish four tail, swims between the algae pond lotus, leisurely and self-satisfied, puts in the fine reward, seems to be in the body among them, may feel its safe, knows its joy.Four fish two opposite, one side painting carp, one side painting mandarin fish, each to meet a bream, species slightly different.In this open-plan, there are many tuberculous sarcomas on the adult head.These four species, since ancient times for the Chinese food, carp, mandarin more often seen in porcelain decoration, painted fish is rare.The hibiscus blooms, buds brim, lotus room floats, branches and leaves extend, or open or close, or close or wither, gather together into a cluster, three small, together with the long and thin, floating seaweed, red and lonesome, interspersed with swimming fish, the meaning is elegant and interesting.Falling flowers, or dark and song dynasty fish music echo.Liu cai’s writing, flowers pressure branches, fish frolicking falling red flowers.It is a deep-wall rhombus, with a ten-sided and smooth opening, and its shape is like a gentle wave, and its business is even more abundant.

Artisan skilled workers, skilled use of cobalt blue thick and weak five colors, rich and varied levels.Indigo painting bone, light green apply color, write swimming fish beautiful posture.As for lotus leaves, with a needle to pick cobalt blue, white veins, big leaves along the curve more covered with moss point, craftsman or deliberately increase its kiln burn black fault, to create a very dry, summer will end the trend of autumn.

Ming Xuanzong Zhu Zhongji, Li Xing art, good at painting, the painting of the imperial pen painted ink “Lianpu Song Yin map”, describes the stem standing birds, lotus pond wide leaves, its tune along with the point of moss, with withered, with the painting of the same time, detailed see Colluge and Jessica Harrison-Hall, “Ming:50 years of prosperity in the Emperor Dynasty”, The British Museum, London,2014, page 177, Figure 154 (Figure 2).

There is yuan one dynasty, lotus pond pattern already very popular, for Jingdezhen potter’s use, especially the blue and white big pot is the most outstanding, see Osaka Dongyang Ceramic Art Museum home old collection blue and white fish algal pattern pot, in “Dongyang Ceramic Magnetic Development”, Dongyang Ceramic Art Museum, Osaka,1999, No.33.It seems to have been inspired by the original blue-and-white algal pattern of the Yuan Dynasty, which is very rare in Xuande’s blue-and-white flower.Four fish on the design, on the variety, and the Brooklyn Museum of Art in New York City or 2002 exhibition in London Eskanazi antiques painted by the canister is exactly the same.And on this opening, the lotus leaf tune along the point of moss, is also early in the Yuan Dynasty, a case of a famous Yuan Dynasty lotus lotus pond mandarin duck jar, originally Oscar C. Raphael Yarn, is now stored in Cambridge’s Fitzwilliam Museum.The two algal tanks were recorded in “Chinese Art under the Mongols.The Yüan Dynamy (1279-1368)”, the Cleveland Museum of Art, Cleveland,1968, number 155, and “Two Rare Chinese Porcelain Fish Jars of the 14 th and 16 th Centres”, Eskanazi Line, London,2002. Later, the book will be more with Osaka, New York, hidden fish algal pattern tank three, and compared to the aquamarine algal map, one of which is Liu Cai’s” falling flowers swimming fish map “, in which Kang Ruijun and Wang Jiahui on the fish pond decoration has further discussion.The blue-and-white lotus pot at the Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge is shown in Margaret Medley, “Yüan Porcelain and Stoneware”, London,1974, color C.

According to the list of the collection, the Taipei Palace Museum stores the same two-piece design with the same pattern as the Xuande blue-and-white algal pattern opening, which has been published in one or only one of the books. The ratio is smaller than the original, and the opening path is smaller (18.4 cm). It is recorded in the exhibition “The Exhibits of Xuande Kiln Jinghua in the Ming Dynasty”. Taipei,1998, No.140 (Figure 1). The list can be found in The Palace Museum Porcelain, Taipei,1961-6, Vol.2: Ming (B), p.124.However, in the public and private collection, there are not with this product decoration, modeling, size of the complete match of the instrument.

According to the collection of Faihori at the Zhushan site of Jingdezhen, we can learn that the Ming Dynasty Imperial Kiln Factory had tried to burn the smaller rhombostomy stacks. For example, we abandoned the multi-ribbed stump of cyprinus macrocephalus (15 cm) which was placed in the waste heap. After restoration, it was exhibited in “Ming Xuande official kiln porcelain unearthed in Jingdezhen”, Hongxi Art Museum, Taipei,1998, No.103-2 (Fig.3), its small wall deep, the same painting similar to lotus pond swimming fish, the exhibition and the collection of a blue fish algal pattern round mouth gold bell stump (15.8 cm), No.103-1.

The opening of Xuande green flower appeared on the auction floor, only one piece, the same as ten edges, decorated with small tuanlong 10 groups, the foot and a circle of lotus petals, see “Hong Kong Sotheby’s 20 years”, Hong Kong,1993, version 60, has been sold in Hong Kong Sotheby’s November 16,1973, No.135 (Figure 4).Although they have the same shape, they have different rhymes.The dragonline on the dragons makes the dragons more precise and orderly, and it is quite different from the fish-music which is light-dyed with thick ink.

There are four pieces Xuande with sunflower type washing and several discs, also decorated with similar algae patterns, but the pattern has been simplified slightly, and the wall is relatively shallow, unable to fully show the delicate and elegant algae, difficult to match the painting of this opening.The sunflower-type washers undulate along the concave-convex shape, which is close to this open-pit, and is full of elegant charm.One of them, a Xuande herringbone algal pattern wash, is shown in Kang Ruijun, “Mei Yin Tang Zang China Ceramics”, London,1994-2010, volume 4, No.1653, later sold in Hong Kong Sotheby’s April 7,2011, No.54, illustrated and mentioned the other three washing, listed in its literature.Blue-and-white fish algal plate, there are recorded in the Taipei Palace Museum in the 1998 exhibition of the example, the above source, No.180, with a book and a blue-and-white lotus pond plate, but due to the swimming fish, No.179.Also found in the waste heap of Jingdezhen Kiln are fish algae washing and disc fragments. See Hongxi Art Museum Exhibition 1998. The above sources, No.19-2 and 86-2.

This fish algal pattern, Xuande to follow the imitation painting, into the Qing Dynasty or also have extended.The Palace Museum in Taipei, Taipei, Taipei,1995, has a shallow open bowl with algal pattern and sunflower pattern, which is recorded in the exhibition “Fu Shou Kang Ning: A Special Exhibition of Lucky Porcelain”, Taipei, No.72The museum also has a large open-plan, similar shape and decorative features. It is listed as Xuande kiln ware in the list of Imperial Palace Porcelain Records in 1960 ‘s. The above-mentioned origin, p.124, is later included in the catalogue of Ming Xuande Porcelain Extraordinary Exhibition Catalogue, National Palace Museum, Taipei,1980, No.28, it is changed to be a post-copy, it seems to be a copy of the Qing Dynasty
