Henry Soulen
Joss Paper Company



This original 1920s oil on board painting by Henry Soulen is a commissioned interior illustration for The Saturday Evening Post. The image shows two figures engaged in what appears to be a traditional "ghost money" ceremony, a Taoist tradition of burning joss paper as an offering to spirits of one's ancestors. The colorful, boldly painted, Orientalist scene is unsigned but is guaranteed to be by the American artist Henry Soulen. The verso bears a Curtis Publishing Company label identifying this as appearing in The Saturday Evening Post. Framed in a simple, original-to-the-painting wood frame. Sight Size 11 1/2" x 17 1/4"
