This reverse glass mirror painting depicts the Yangtze River Bridge, the first heavy bridge designed and built solely by the Chinese and a great source of pride when it was completed in 1968. The traditional art of painting behind glass involves working in reversed sequence; first the details, then the main image, and lastly, the background. The artist has no opportunity to make corrections, which makes the technique particularly challenging. The result has survived turmoil and travel in its original frame.

“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.”
