Very Large Traditional Bird and Flower Painting
Very Large 19th Century Traditional Bird and Flower Painting, with pheasants, swallows, ferns, bamboo, orchids, and yellow roses. Hwajodo (bird and flower paintings) were almost always unsigned. Though this painting is anonymous, the artist was obviously highly skilled. The birds are paired to symbolize love. The orchids symbolize purity in this context, and the bamboo symbolize resilience. It was believed that the owner of this painting would experience pure and resilient love. A stunning and very large example of this popular genre. Ink and colors on paper. Frame: 52 x 34 inches, 132 x 86.5 cm; Painting: 42.5 x 24.5 inches, 108 x 62 cm.
