"The Painter's Children in the Japanese Room" fan
Polished pear wood. 27 cm (sitck). Made in Spain.
One of Mariano Fortuny's most fascinating works, The Painter's Children in the Japanese Room (1874) is a synthesis of Japanese art and Western drawing that remained unfinished at his death. This beautiful fan depicts the two butterflies perched on the branches of pine and plum trees behind the little girl.
