Beautiful Cantonese export painting. Painted with mineral pigment on silk. Popular during the 19th century. In this frame two scenes are portrayed of amorous pursuits with various ways of entertainment in the entertainment quarters. The mood is lively. Some play the musical instruments like the Qin and Mandolin, while others chat or rest on Dali marble chairs. Beautiful flower arrangements are positioned in each scene. There is incredible detail on the faces and details are realistically painted. Paintings are displayed in wooden frame. Age: 19th century. Size with frame: 19.875"H x 15"L
