Oriental Girl with Fan (circa 19th Century Oil)
$800.00

This original painting on thin stretched linen on canvas measures 7 by 11 inches, including the bamboo style wooden frame it sits in.

The subject is a young Chinese girl in a colorful robe holding a fan made of peacock feathers.

This painting is in "As Found" condition which means it needs some level of restoration. The painting shows a heavy level of crackle (similar to that found on old Chinese ceramics. It also has a 3 to 4 inch split along the right side. There are a few other other small problems in this painting. It will require some restoration, but will be worth it. This little gem will be a classic after restoration. However,it is being sold AS-IS, due to it's current condition.

It is unsigned but there are Chinese characters on the reverse stretcher, which may be the equivalent of a signature.
