Our Inspiration:Waves in the moonlight

Unidentified Chinese artist, Southern Song dynasty (1127–1279)

Fan mounted as an album leaf; ink on silk; 8 3/4 x 8 13/16 in.;

13th century

From the Collection of A. W. Bahr,

Purchase, Fletcher Fund, 1947   47.18.70

This composition calls to mind paintings of the tidal bore, an annual event where exceptionally high tides push into the Qiantang River in Hangzhou, resulting in a powerful tidal wave that runs up the course of the river. When the imperial capital was moved to Hangzhou during the Southern Song dynasty, the tidal bore became a subject for court painters, and this painting was likely created in that milieu.
