Posters created in China during the early 20th century, such as this well-preserved advertisement, reflect the growing influence of Western culture through commercial trade. Carefully modeled in Western-style realism, the young woman engages the viewer with her winning gaze and casual posture. In contrast, the waterfall backdrop is more stylized, resembling traditional Chinese painting in its graphic treatment of light and dark and flattened notion of space. Printed with the then modern technology of lithography, the poster still exhibits brilliant color and exceptional detail.

“Over the years, I’ve incorporated many pieces from PAGODA RED into my designs. Not only can they balance new furnishings (and often new construction) by feeling more established, but the pieces emanate a sense of rich history, often leaving you wondering where they were in a previous life. These beautiful pieces carefully hand-selected by the team at PAGODA RED, coupled with their unbelievable customer service, make them a must-have for any home.”
