oil on canvas,

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. ■
