Pair of Framed Ancestor Portraits Painted on Silk


Originally hung in ancestral halls, ancestor portraits were painted posthumously and then hung in the temple to be venerated at important anniversaries and weddings by the sitter's descendants. They play an important part in China's artistic tradition, and are still being commissioned today.

Both the man and the woman are seated in matching ornate chairs with light blue cushions which match the color of the foot rest. The background is beige and is surrounded with beige matting surrounded by a gold frame. The man is holding a sword.

Sold only as a pair, price listed is for the pair of portraits.
