Late Ming/Early Qing [Ching] Dynasty Chinese Literati-style painting rendered upon silk. Practiced by educated, scholarly gentlemen (known as "Literati") of the time, such paintings were intricately and finely hand-drawn utilizing stylized brushes, then overlaid with an ink wash. Masters of calligraphy as well as painting techniques, such scholars created artistic work in the arts of poetry and writing in addition to painting. Civil servants appointed by the Emperor to perform day-to-day governing duties within their villages, the Literati instilled the elements and attributes of morality and virtue, of which they represented, within their art. This particular painting depicts such a scholar, perhaps the artist himself, contemplating underneath a pine tree. His faithful attendant is collecting blossoms at the base of the tree and placing them into a basket. The condition is very good commensurate with age. Exquisite restoration has occurred within some areas (see photos), denoting the value this painting once held. Some staining can be seen toward the bottom of the mat, as well as some tears to the paper backing. Special note: a frame with UV glass is available for this painting at no extra cost. Shipping, however, will need to be recalculated should it be included.
