Ming Dynasty Red Lacquer Cabinet with Gilt Painting

A fine example of conspicuous consumption in 17th century China is found in this painted red lacquer cabinet from Shanxi Province in North Central China. Each of the panels is decorated with a landscape vignette copied from an album. Each vignette picked out in gilt and black pigments, the style is reminiscent of the work of Lan Ying, a famous painter of the 17 century.. The cabinet still retains airs of elegance and refinement that once graced the interior of a wealthy home. Painted Red Lacquer Cabinet Shanxi Province, North Central China Late Ming Dynasty, 17th Century 59 W x 25D x 72.5H Original List Price: $15,000
