18th century Chinese Painting of a Father with his four children; one who is riding on a mythological creature above the roof tops pleading for mercy. The Father looks tired, exhausted from disciplining his children, with circles under his eyes and a fan in his hand to be used as a paddle for discipline!. Very well hand-painted of course with some very minor lose of pigment. Painting alone measures 15.5" x 12". with contemporary frame 23" x 19" in silver leaf professionally done. Painting is under glass and the camera reflex light.. The colours in person are brighter and details sharper.
