Ca. early 1700s

Originally used as a traditional folding fan, its creases are clearly visible as is also the wear and paper losses, particularly along the edges. The painting was removed from its bamboo supports many years ago and mounted on a scroll or screen. The mounting can be seen on the back and is also visible as a thin border along the front edges, and remnants of a mulberry paper backing are lightly attached to the back on top of the old scroll mounting paper. The scene is of two women in a garden. One holds a fan while the other is involved in writing with her calligraphy implements laid out on the stone in front of her. The colors – pinks, blues, reds, green and yellow, all pleasantly muted with age, are brushed onto an aged brownish yellow background.

Length: 17 ½ in., Height: 6 ¼ in.
