More About this Item


Description

This is a delicate watercolor from an album of Chinese bird and flower paintings. The watercolor was completed circa 1900. The artwork is inspired by Daoist philosophy. Laurence Binyon referred to the attractive composition style of Chinese watercolors as an "exquisite courtesy to nature." Each image depicts mostly natural history subjects amongst foliage or Chinese costumes or types. Great care and skill are evident in each watercolor using the calligrapher's brush rather than pen or pencil.
