Chinese ancestor portrait from the 19th-century. These types of portraits were actually painted after the person had died. They were mounted on scrolls and were only shown from time to time in connection with the veneration of ancestors. Purchased in Macau in the late 1990s and remounted on a new scroll. Dimensions: image, 48.5"L x 29.5"W; overall scroll, 68"L x 33"W.
