|Title:||Song ceramics: Vase, 12th-13th century|
Photographer: Basham, Arthur Llewellyn
|Description:||Light pottery covered with a dark slip out of which a pattern of peonies has been left standing|
a transparent green glaze has then been applied. From the Cizhou kiln in Hebei. This pot was "mass-produced" but yet it is an unmistakably individual work. Never before, even in China, had pottery, made for use, restricted in its means, and without a painter's help in its decoration, shown such clear marks of personality with all the strength and weakness of simple humanity. -- h: 7" (Musee Guimet, Paris).
