    About

    'Beauty with Child', woodblock print on paper, Early Qing dynasty, China. (c) The Trustees of the British Museum. This charming scene depicts an elegantly dressed lady on a blue garden rock, who opens her arms to a little boy. The child is presenting her with an animal that appears to be either a cicada or a little frog. The red folds of the lady’s garment are enhanced with strokes in more intense colour; they seem to have been dabbed on the paper with the use of stencils, achieving the effect of a painted brushstroke. This applied technique can be seen in a number of prints from the Sloane collection. Such ‘brushstrokes’ may have been the hallmark of a workshop in Suzhou. Elegant ladies were a popular subject for album paintings of the time. The motif also appears on Kangxi-period porcelain plates.
