Handpainted Chinese scene of 4 maidens on silk
Sold by Items of Value, Inc
This scene offers much detail to be discovered and appreciated while your eye wanders around the scene, 12-1/2"h x 16-1/4"w exposed image in coral-color mat and bamboo-style frame, 21"h x 25"w. The background itself offers much variety from the blossoming prunus tree in top left over the green bamboo, both seen just beyond the low white balustrade and 2 red posts supporting a roof with blue bracket scrolls . Two "maidens" in colorful robes stand together on the left, while a second couple stands on the right, also in very detailed garments, near a table topped by arm rest, lightedtrifid incense pot, two tapered cups, pot with rolled paper, plus a blue tassel hanging from white cloud on a tall wood stand, all this against screen panels of white water lilies and green leaves, plus purple sun under clouds, the panels bordered by bracket motif. The colors are strong and the silk is in good condition. Note a slight smudge in the top right corner.
