SCHMS1
Schiff, Fred: MASKEE. A Shanghai Sketchbook. Shanghai, c.1940. Title and 20 pp. of hand-coloured cartoons. 27x20 cm. Concertina-style album of Chinese patterned red silk. Some wear and marks.
GBP 1,900.00
A collection of racy hand-coloured cartoons, inspired by the life (or, rather, nightlife) of the port of Shanghai, suitably captioned and altogether an amusing period piece. Schiff was the artist who most aptly caught the essence of the heady days of the melting pot that was Shanghai in the early 20th century and, in particular, the interplay between Chinese and foreigner. This is no. 281 of a limited edition, hand-coloured and signed by the artist. Some bowing to the patterned silk covers and some wear and marks but retaining good red colour. Internally, in good condition with occasional marks. Very rare and quite delightful.
Subjects: Foreigners in Asia Shanghai
