Description

Very impressive large scale watercolours of Chinese scenes, presumably executed for the Western market by an anonymous master and depicting internal and external views of a house. This type of export watercolours is usually found in a much smaller format; due to their very delicate nature, it is very uncommon to find examples of such size as the present group, and with the colouring still very fresh.

Description

Two watercolours on paper, 95 x 166 cm each; marginal tears, some minor restoration, light occasional marginal waterstains. Framed and glazed. Overall dimensions: 101 x 171 cm.
