Description:
This is an outstanding set of early 19th century Chinese Export Pith Paintings of butterflies and flowers. The paintings were created c.1830-40 in gouache on pith paper. Pith paper involved very fine slicing of the "pith" center of the Tetrapanax papyriferum tree. The diameter of these small trees or sbrubs restricted the size of the paper; therefore, pith paintings are all small. All 12 of these paintings are in very good overall condition and framed in matching modern frames. There is minor, expected, splitting to the edges of some of the painting that does not extend into the paintings themselves.
