What Emperor was this?

This is an ancestor portrait featuring a woman rather than a man, dressed in garb befitting the wife of a senior civil servant. The seals include at least one fake seal imitating a Qianlong imperial seal. The picture is probably quite recently made in imitation of late 19th/early 20th century ancestor portraits. However the photographs you posted don't really allow a clear answer.

thanks Rat. It seems that faking is a part of this industry, if in the US, or England etc...

so how is one to know? bring it to the Asian Art Forum.

Thanks everyone. | Associations | Articles | Exhibitions | Galleries |
