Since the 12th century people in China have used folding screens and doors to partition and decorate their homes—the vivid scenes backing the screens added life and color to a room. This unusual set of four 19th century gouache and ink paintings of scholars would have backed a wooden screen in northern China. Each scholar is painted with a frame and abstract dragons, symbolizing strength. The four paintings are floated on linen and framed behind glass.

“PAGODA RED was extremely supportive in helping to pull accessory options together for the Lake Forest Showhouse. After providing them with details and our vision on how we were looking to finish our space, Laurene helped curate options that made it easy for us to edit and finalize. It's also no surprise that the unique pieces we used in our showhouse space were some of the first to sell.”
