Caroline Camden Lewis. Ming Dynasty. Acrylic on canvas. 8″ x 8.″ (2014). $ 125
China’s Ming Dynasty (1368-1644) saw cultural and political expansion, as well as a revival of the arts as it blended foreign elements with traditional Chinese artistic expression. This painting is an homage this period’s great artistic legacy in blending the traditional jade and red tones with modern, expressive brushwork.
