Set of Eight Chinese Ricepaper Paintings

  • H: 34.5 cm (13 9/16")
  • W: 41.5 cm (16 5/16")
  • D: 2.5 cm (1")

Set of eight original 19th Century Chinese ricepaper paintings, depicting flowers and butterflies.

Chinese ricepaper was a coveted material for brush painting, as it was generally thinner and more absorbent than Western papers. 

Each stroke on this surface preserves a high level of form and clarity when paint or ink is transferred to paper. Hence the stunning level of detail and vibrant colour seen in these paintings. 

This set originate from Canton, in southern China. Circa 1870. They are presented in hand-decorated frames, which give the set an aesthetic uniformity.
