Fucki with Two People in a Gourd, One with a Chinese Fan


Description Provenance Inscription Credit
Description The gourd is depicted with a hole in its side, revealing two men inside. This may be the 3rd-century Chinese immortal Koko (Ch. Hu Gong [Hu Kung]) and his student Hichibo (Ch. Fei Zhang Fang [Fei Chang Fang]) who were able to shrink themselves to fit in a gourd. On the back is another man holding a fan who appears to have come out of the gourd. It is part of a set with Walters 51.906.
Provenance William T. / Henry Walters Collection, Baltimore [date and mode of acquisition unknown]; Walters Art Museum, 1931, by bequest.
