Framed 19th Century Chinese Erotic Album Leaf

About

Despite its explicit content, this intimate scene conveys a sense of tenderness and romantic love characteristic of Chinese erotic art. Known as “spring palace paintings,” these ink and watercolor illustrations imagined the sensual delights of courtly life. Taken from an album of erotic paintings, this framed leaf continues a tradition of depicting lovers in risqué outdoor locations, and places the amorous coupling in a distinctly Qing-dynasty setting. The uniquely detailed surroundings shed light on the prevailing aesthetic tastes in decor and furniture of 19th century, China. Note the early automobile styled with auspicious ruyi Formations and the sculptural lingbi scholars rock tucked in the background.
