Chinoiserie Style

I am so excited about my new painting and my new love, "Chinoiserie."

Chinoiserie, a French term, signifying "Chinese-esque", refers to a recurring theme in European artistic styles since the seventeenth century, which reflect Chinese artistic influences.[1] It is characterized by the use of fanciful imagery of an imaginary China, by asymmetry in format and whimsical contrasts of scale, and by the attempts to imitate Chinese porcelain and the use of lacquerlike materials and decoration.

This painting stands 8x10 and the sides have been painted so no frame is needed unless wanted. It is for sale in my Etsy shop. SOLD
