Ancestor Painting, Couple in Yellow and Black
This large ancestor portrait is a reproduction based on the paintings produced in China for centuries as part of the common practice of ancestor worship. Families would honour their ancestors with offerings placed in front of their portraits, which would show either individuals, couples or in some cases several generations. The subjects would be shown seated, dressed in their official robes displaying the square badges of their rank. Here the man and his wife are dressed in black and yellow robes, with the bird insignias on the front denoting their level within the court. The painting is supplied with a black frame as shown.
