Ren Yi "Ren Bonian" (Chinese, 1840-1895). Ink on gold paper painting depicting a bird on a flowering branch. Marked with his seal in red and inscribed along the margin of the painting.
Height: 15 1/4 in x width: 15 1/4 in.


The painting is in good condition in general with no visible tears or losses, or major creases. The paper is toned and has foxing. Along the left margin, there is a tide line, possibly water damage. To the upper left corner, there is a minor crease. To the lower center of the paper, there is an uneven surface, most likely the original paper texture. The color is bold and bright. From the verso, there is a light line of impression that measures 1 1/2 inches and that is only visible under careful inspection. When inspected under UV light, there is no visible sign of restoration. Please contact us for a detailed condition report. Please note that the lack of a condition statement does not imply perfect condition. Email with any condition questions.
