A large late Qing ancestor painting on canvas. Shanxi province, 19th century. Dim.: WxH172x204cm. Top- and lower end have a tunnel to insert wooden rods to hang it, meaning it will be easy to display. Condition: overall a bit grubby, some stains and fading. The figures stand out brightly against the softer background. In all probability this painting has been washed at some instance after which the figures have been touched up. This is not a matter of meeting the market demands but has to be viewed as "maintenance" on a religious item used by a family in the veneration of the ancestors.
