Sir William Cornelius Van Horne (1843-1915), president of Canadian
Pacific Railway and Honourary Knight Commander of the Order of
St. Michael and St. George (K.C.M.C), was an avid art collector and
amassed one of Montreals most significant pre-war collections
which also included Asian works of art. Van Horne had a particular
fondness for Japanese porcelain and kept meticulous records,
assigning specific inventory numbers to items in his collection.
Following his death, most of Van Hornes Asian pottery was
bequeathed to the Royal Ontario Museum in Toronto. Years later,
after the passing of his wife Lady van Horne, a portion of the
collection was donated to the Montreal Museum of Fine Art.

Est. $20,000/25,000

Provenance: Purchased in Hong Kong during the 1960s.


Note: Highly favoured by elite members of the late Ming dynasty, the standard painting table was extremely
popular and could be constructed from a variety of different woods ranging from jichimu, huanghuali and
burlwood to more common materials such as elm and pine. Characterized by its simple and elegant form,
this present example of the Ming painting table features typical joinery of the period and is distinguished
by a flat top, smooth and undecorated apron, short spandrels, recessed legs, and double stretchers.
The underside of the inset flat top panel has been lacquered, which is unusual for hardwood furniture
especially that constructed of jichimu, one of the preferred types of wood. Additionally, the overall size and
proportion of the current example is rare because while it maintains a significant width, the length has
been truncated and measures less than 50 inches across. For a table similar in size but with a larger width,
refer to a huanghuali example found in Beyond the Screen: Chinese Furniture of the 16th and 17th
Centuries (Boston: Museum of Fine Arts, 1996), catalogue item 17, p. 125

Blue and White Table Top Snuff Bottle, 19th Century

continuous scene of warriors on horseback approaching the gates of the western city,
height 4.9 12.5 cm.

Est. $1,000/1,500

Note: The illustrated scene represents a fictional event


from the Romance of the Three Kingdoms involving one
of the most revered strategists of the time, chancellor of
the Shu Han state, Zhuge Liang and Sima Yi, leader of
the Wei army from the rival state Wei.
During the first Northern Expansion, Zhuge Liangs
unsuccessful efforts to invade Changan left him
vulnerable to attack by advancing armies. However, using
reverse psychology and the empty fort strategy, one of
32 stratagems outlined in an early essay on politics, war,
and civil interaction, Zhuge Liang was able to thwart the
Wei armys attempts.
In the scene depicted on the snuff bottle, Zhuge Liang is
prominently seated atop the open gates of the western
city playing the guqin as the Wei army, led by Sima Yi
approaches. Creating the illusion that Zhuge Liang was
calm and prepared to fight, the seemingly brazen
invitation to battle triggered fears of ambush and Sima Yi,
along with the whole Wei army retreated. Although
fictionalized, this story is one of the best-known literary
examples demonstrating the empty fort strategy. (Alternate View)

Century

scene including a young boy riding a bull with arms out stretched
holding a branch with a small song bird perched near the tip, a rocky
mountain emerges from between the swirling clouds in the
background with the whole landscape surrounded by a variety of
foliage, all completed in underglaze blue, the smooth base unglazed,
height 7.9 20 cm., diameter 4.2 10.7 cm.

Est. $12,000/15,000

Provenance: The Estate of Dr. David Varadi, Toronto. Acquired from


Sydney L. Moss Ltd., London, September 3,1974.
Note: Well painted and a fine example of the period, the pastoral scene
illustrated on this brush pot represents the theme of spring, or more
specifically Lichun, the coming of spring, a farmers holiday. The
ox, a traditional symbol of the season, is depicted in its typical form as
strong and sturdy. Meanwhile, the young boy is rendered in the form
of an ox-driver holding a willow branch, which also serves as a whip.
This pairing of the ox and young ox-driver helps to recall the ritual
process of beating the spring ox, where clay models of an ox were hit
with sticks, most likely willow branches, to help stimulate the revival of
spring.

flora with the design continuing along the interior, diameter 5.3 13.5
cm.

Est. $20,000/30,000

Provenance: The Estate of Doris McCordick (1912-1977) of St.


Catherines, ON, thence by descent within the family. The bowl was a
gift from her brother-in-law Paul Grigaut (1905-1969) while he was chief
curator of the Detroit Art Institute from 1955-1963. Paul Grigaut was an
internationally renowned decorative arts and ceramics specialist who
studied and taught at many institutions including the University of
Paris, University of Chicago, Fogg Museum of Harvard, and Virginia
Museum of Fine Arts. His research, correspondences, photographs,
slides and lecture notes are all stored at the Bentley Historical Library
at the University of Michigan.
Note: Elegantly rendered with the sensitivity and style traditionally
associated with Chinese paintings on silk or paper, the bowl depicts a (Alternate View)
solitary bird, possibly in the form of a waxwing, perched on a branch of
red berries. Designs of Kangxi period bowls featuring a single bird are
extremely rare with the most recent example sold in Sothebys Hong
Kong The Meiyintang Collection, April 7 2011, lot 3.

Additionally, the continuous design of twisting branches on both the


interior and exterior, as seen on the present bowl, is a highly unusual
feature. While this type of motif originated in the Kangxi period, it was
more commonly found in Yongzheng famille rose examples of bowls
and dishes. Compare to a pair of bowls with fruiting sprays and
butterflies from the B. Y. Lam Foundation published in Qing Imperial
Porcelain (The Chinese University of Hong Kong, 1995), no. 24. The
quality of the famille verte enamels is almost identical to the present
bowl, along with the shape, hidden footring, and mark.
