[A series of 4 Chinese drawings]. [China, ca. 1650/60?]. Colour drawings (3 ca. 28 x 18 cm, the 4th cut down to 16.5 x 17.5 cm), apparently showing Manchurian scenes.
A series of 4 colour drawings of Manchurian(?) scenes. All mounted on Dutch paper probably from the period 1650-1660. The paper of the drawings themselves ranges, in three cases, from 27 x 16 cm to 30 x 19.5 cm; the fourth has been cut down to 16.5 x 17.5 cm. The drawings show the following (all outdoor scenes):1) a dignitary on horseback, with his attendant on foot carrying a parasol.2) 2 ladies, 1 holding the other's sleeve, with a flowering tree and an octagonal stone basin(?).3) a lady with a flowering plant in a basket, with a deer at her side.4) 2 ladies: 1 with a fan; the other leaning on a table with a vase of flowers.All 4 backed with matching European paper watermarked with a 7-point foolscap above "4" and 3 balls. The closest matches in the literature, Laurentius 431-437 (especially 431 and 435), date from 1651 to 1658.
