I would love any information or feedback as to this painting of a king. Very expertly painted, not a print. Thanks

Hardly a king.

If not a vanity portrait by a contemporary person wishing to feel important, then this gentleman would have been a 6th rank Mandarin in the Civil Order, who would have functioned as a Secretary or Tutor at an Imperial Institution.

Thank you very much for your expert knowledge it was very helpful and appreciated. The item was purchased at auction about 30 years ago so I'm not sure of it's age. Many Thanks | Associations | Articles | Exhibitions | Galleries |
