Chinese Coromandel Screen

A CHINESE COROMANDEL SCREEN

Kangxi

Circa 1700

The four incised polychrome panels on a black ground with figures pursuing everyday activities amongst pavilions in a fantastical garden landscape.   The scene is enclosed by a triple border.  Firstly a continuous band of pairs of dragons flanking a ‘shou’ character, secondly a wide band displaying the ‘100 treasures’ and thirdly a narrow geometric band.   Unusually the back is plain.

Originally a twelve fold screen.  Predominantly original colours with some losses.   There is some infill painting on the edges to match up the panels.

Measurements:

Each panel 103” (262cm) high x 19 ½” (49cm) wide

Overall width 78” (196cm)
