Original Chinese Watercolor on Silk -Vintage painting/sumi-e, Horse



This product is currently out of stock

This hand painted watercolor, or sumi-e, is rendered on silk and mounted on course handmade paper with a brocade fabric boarder. This traditional method of mounting allows the painting to be displayed with or without a frame and matte board. The style and technique follows centuries old conventions in Chinese brush painting. More than just a depiction of a beautiful scene, it is also a display of deeply felt harmony and balance. Concepts of Yin and Yang are played out in the contrast of animals that roam freely and stationalry or inanimate objects such as bamboo or stone, things that are rooted firmly to the ground. As much as it is a contrast in objects it is also a contrast in energies or Chi. Each of our vintage silk paintings were originally painted in the mid 20th century and are from the Yangtze River Valley, where the dramatic landscapes have inspired Chinese poets and painters for thousands of years.
