  • $1,475

A very fine ancestor portrait on an elder. This is a gold colored framed painting done on rice paper from Shanxi Province, China estimated late to early 19th century .

In Chinese culture death does not sever the connection to the living, therefore many families would commission ancestor paintings and use them for ancestor worship. Usually depicted sitting in a throne, like this portrait, with a lavish carpet at the feet.

In great condition. Measures 51" tall by 33" wide.
