Yao Coat Panel
More recently made, and possibly for a girl’s coat, this beautiful small panel uses a different palette than the other pieces in this collection. Fine silk embroidery in light and dark gold, and cobalt blue are accented with red appliqued bands as a border; the background is a very dark, almost black, indigo blue cotton. It includes the dancing figure motif, as well as the flowers, and a row of trees at the bottom. Condition is very good.
Size: 19.5 in. x 12.5 in.
