    About

    This stage-like scene is an illustration of the famous poem ‘Eight Immortals of the Wine Cup’ by the celebrated Tang-dynasty poet Du Fu (ad 712-770). The poem relates the joyful drinking habits of eight high officials, calligraphers and poets during the reign of Emperor Minghuang. Li Bai, also known as Li Taibo (ad 701–762), was one of them. The verse Du Fu wrote in reference to Li Bai is inscribed on the print, which shows a complex architectural setting in blue, brown, yellow and green. The emperor sits on a terrace in front of a large screen and watches Li Bai kneeling and whirling his brush – inspired by wine – to create a series of poems. Illustrations of Du Fu’s poem appear in ink paintings of the Ming as well as on porcelain of the Shunzhi (1644-61) and Kangxi periods.
