"Landscape With Flowers And Birds, Horizontal Roll Painting, Polychrome Ink On Paper. China Ching Period. Asia"
Chinese painting on polychrome horizontal scroll depicting a landscaped scene.
The decoration is done in ink and using colored pigments on paper.
This painting dates from the Ching Dynasty (18th - 19th centuries) and is taken from a scroll that was originally longer.

The decor highlights various birds and plants characteristic of Chinese pictorial art. Probably from left to right: two swallows, a parakeet and great crested kingfishes or bulbuls, recognizable by their long beaks of fishing birds. In the center, the bird is placed on a branch of a flowering plum tree, a species commonly represented in Chinese art, or perhaps a branch of a cherry tree, framed by several colorful flowers such as ibises, azaleas and other hibiscus.

Note: the rarity of this horizontal format, which is nevertheless very suitable for a rural landscape. The combination of these two themes (birds and flowers) is recurrent, in particular from the beginnings of Chinese painting, the subjects of which subsequently diversified, which therefore makes this work with an atypical form a representation of the subject. quite traditional.
