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.

“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.”
