occasions that it has been seen, it has caused great interest. Indeed eighteen months ago the British Antique Dealer’s Fair organisers invited me to display a small China trade exhibition on my stand and in 2009 the vetters declared it the ‘Picture of the Fair’.
Framed in a wide Dutch black lacquer-style frame with an inner gilded slip and UV museum quality glass.
Remarkable for its age. It has been conserved in the past and the silk has been placed on an acid free loom. This work has been carried out to a very high standard.
It is thought that this fascinating work originally formed part of a scroll which extended in both directions illustrating the length of the Pearl River, as discussed in Dr. Patrick Conner’s book ‘The Hongs of Canton – Western Merchants in South China 1700-1900, as seen in Chinese export paintings’
