Beautifully detailed and masterfully painted, this painting dating from the turn of the 20th century centers its expressive composition upon a rondel of Chinese symbols. Representing prosperity, a pair of exuberant children cavorts in a fantastical landscape. One rides a sensitively portrayed qilin, a mythological lion-like dragon who represents joy and benevolence, the other child waves a banner inscribed with the message “Good luck for your future.” Painted on muslin, the work is presented in a stunning green-tinted Elmwood frame.
