very good condition, new mounting, pottery scroll-ends

- beautiful scroll handpainted on silk depicting one of the popular "FOUR CHINESE BEAUTIES" 四大美女

- Diao Chan 貂蟬 was a beautiful woman that contributed to the downfall of the tyrannic warlord Dong Zhuo 董卓 at the very end of the Later Han period 後漢 (25-220 CE). She is probably not a historical person but only figures in literature, where she is especially famous in the romance Sanguo yanyi 三國演義 "The Three Kingdoms". Diao is not a family name, so her identity remains unclear, and her name could also be written in one word, Diaochan. (more info see pictures)

- signed and sealed by the artist
- scroll was purchased in Japan
- some very slight foxing and wrinkles, see pictures
- scroll measures 61,8 x 170,5 cm / 24.3" x 67.1"
- scroll ends in nice pottery
- very nice mounting
- please see pictures as they form part of the description
- will be packed securely and send TR&TR , signing on delivery
