oil on canvas,

25' x  5'

on display at La Chine,

The Waldorf Astoria, NY 

This work elaborates on two sources:  a Ming dynasty scroll  by an anonymous artist, and a scroll by Giuseppe Castiglione,  an Italian missionary, who became court painter to a Qing emperor. The result combines the abstraction of Chinese painting with the spatial arrangement of Baroque painting. ■
