A pair of rare Chinese export hand-painted wallpaper panels, rendered in gouache on paper, later mounted as screen panels, depicting a father and son in their garden with their house in the background and with other family members seen in a gallery and through a window and with servants or vendors coming upon the scene, one yoked with baskets of vegetables. Are the squabbling cockerels in the garden mimicking the unruly child on the terrace gallery? Lovely warm colors and rich in detail, these two panels were undoubtedly part of a more expansive scene at one time and would have captivated the western customers for which they were intended…and still do. Measuring 58 1/2″ tall x 22″ wide, the panels have the usual scuffs, minor inpainting and wear commensurate with age, but are in overall very good and stable condition. Late 18th/early 19th century.
