An extremely useful addition to the limited literature on the subject. 107 examples of 19th century pith paper Chinese watercolours with a wide range of subject matter - birds, figures, landscapes, ships - are illustrated in good colour. The watercolours comprise a donation to the Guangzhou Museum by Mr. Ifan Williams and have been the subject of an exhibition. The book benefits from a dual Chinese and English text and will appeal to anyone interested in Chinese export art or the China Trade. Bump to bottom of cover. Out-of-print and difficult to find.
