"The Painter's Children in the Japanese Room" paperweight
Glass. 8 x 8 cm. Made in Spain.
Mariano Fortuny captured the intimacy of his children in The Painter's Children in the Japanese Room (1874), one of his most captivating works. This original paperweight shows a detail of it, little María Luisa fanning herself and two butterflies perched on pine and plum branches behind her.
