Provenance

From the Collection of Emil Hultmark (1872-1943). Emil Hultmark was one of the co-founders of the ‘Kinaklubben’ (China Club) in Stockholm in the 1920's with Carl Kempe (1884-1967) and the Crown Prince Gustav Adolf. He is a well known collector and his beautiful home and summer house is well documented in the magazine 'Svenska Hem i ord och bild' in the 1930's, which provide us with a fascinating window into this golden age of European collecting.

Literature

The scene presumably Thanksgiving thrice- the 80th birthday gathering of the Tang dynaty general Guo Ziyi.
