The skill required to execute reverse glass paintings is greater than that needed to decorate fine porcelain, and subject matter ranged from the mythological, to religious, literary, political and historical depictions mostly copied by the Chinese artists from European prints. However, this rare erotic glass painting was taken from an earlier Chinese original on silk or paper.
