Product Description

Artist: Qian Lushu, alias Qinchen (琴琛)
Title: Sparrow in a Flowering Branch
Medium: Watercolour on Gold Paper (Shape of a Fan)
Date: Guangxu Period (1875-1908)

This finely observed scene of sparrow in a flowering branch was painted by the obscure but talented artist Qian Lushu, who seems to have worked in Shanghai during the second half of the 19th century. The calligraphy to the left of the fan suggests that it was a gift.

As well as the remnants of an old price label, the reverse bears a wax export seal for the Shanghai Cultural Relics Bureau, allowing its export from China during the Maoist Period (1949-1976). There is also an old price label.

Size (Leaf): 50 x 23cm
