Main Product Image
The deep lines and gray hair of the sitter tell of a long life, while the mischievous sparkle and portly build attest to a life enjoyed in this traditional style portrait. The deep earth tones of the subtle background and draped costume suggest sensibility and understatement; contrasting beautifully with the playful crimson scarf. The subject's expression is one of contentment, tinged with the heaviness of a lifetime of knowledge, but determined to appreciate the joys in life. The soft brushstrokes and painterly style imbue the seemingly simple portrait with a complex balance of sentimentality and realism. This handsome box is made of high quality papier mache and is signed on the lid with the artist's name. There is a hinge on the left, and the interior is red lacquer. The base of the piece is flush.
