Qing Dynasty Chinese Painting of a Royalty Related Couple with Dragon Motifs
A Chinese Qing Dynasty period framed painting from the 19th century of a royalty related couple with dragon motifs painted on a linen canvas. Created in China during the Qing Dynasty, this custom framed painting depicts a couple wearing either a red (a symbol of luck in China) or green robe. The depiction of dragons relates them to the Imperial family, but having four claws on not five as codified, the couple is likely part of the royal family, not the Imperial couple themselves. Accented with typical motifs such as bats, flaming pearls and rain-filled clouds, the robes are filled with symbols.
Wearing ornate headdresses, the couple is sitting on elegant chairs. Set inside custom made frames, the paintings show great signs of age. While the entire piece measures 40.5"W x 1"D x 53"H, the painting itself is 36.5"W x 49". With its vivid colors and interesting subject, this Chinese Qing Dynasty painting depicting a royalty related couple will make for a great addition to any home.
