Chinese Republic Period Ancestral Portrait


This work unusual for being done in oil on canvas is from the late period of the Manchu Rule and may in fact be more about a desire for the glory days of Chinese imperial rule then a specific family portrait completed of living members of a clan. Well accomplished if somewhat idealized the work shows extended members of a family 9 in all set within a traditional Chinese interior. Of note the house hold interior scene is enlivened by a view outside to an idyllic landscape setting creating a confined yet expansive view all in one. The painting is done in flat colors, transparent washes and some gilded highlights creating a colorful and dynamic image. Framed in a black and gilded frame and piece is ready to hang. Very good condition with colors bright and well detailed.
