Eventail: Oiseaux dans les Roseaux

Watercolor and gouache on silk, ca. 1880, 320 x 600 mm. Finished painting on silk in the form of a fan, showing small birds in black, brown and white flying and resting among reeds, signed with the small, red monogram stamp. A similarly painted fan, with mice, was exhibited in the Zimmerli Japonisme show and a few others, of different subjects, have surfaced in recent years, including several that brought, at auction, almost double the price quoted here. Superbly painted with great fluency, this is a major original work of the French Japonisme movement.
