Kashira with a Nightingale on a Plum Tree Branch


Description Provenance Inscription Credit
Description A nightingale on a plum tree branch is a reference to a poem by the Chinese poet Hakurakuten (Ch. Bai Juyi [Po Chü-i]) (772-847). In the poem, the owner of a plum tree refuses to cut off a flowering branch because it will leave the nightingale without a place to perch. This is part of a set with Walters 51.1086.
Provenance William T. / Henry Walters Collection, Baltimore [date and mode of acquisition unknown]; Walters Art Museum, 1931, by bequest.
