A 19th century 3rd rank Qing Dynasty high official ancestor scroll painting on paper. The painting has been remounted (normal for a scroll this age). Most recently the scroll bars were removed and the excess paper was trimmed except for the sides which you would want to trim before framing. In good condition with age related wear including some horizontal cracking in the red paint which was applied thicker than the rest of the painting. There are some water spots in the upper right, see photos.
The painting only measures: 35.5" wide x 65" long. The painting is very well rendered, please note the face and beard.
