Cabinet with Chinese and American Motifs

Walters Art Museum

About the work

curationist logo

This engaging cabinet incorporates brilliant color and imaginative scenes in emulation of the high-gloss lacquerware found in China or Japan. It was modeled after furniture imported to the Netherlands by the Dutch East India Company, and the painter took artistic liberties in the depiction of indigenous figures in newly 'discovered' worlds.
