Antique French Porcelain Orientalist Vases


A standout pair of late 19th century or early 20th century porcelain vases painted with chinoiserie scenes. Both vases show a colorful scene with a beautiful, young, European woman wearing Chinese dress. These attractive and imaginative scenes portray China as exotic, colorful and sensual.

This Orientalist style of painting stresses the exotic visual spectacle. Each vase captures a moment in time in a fantasy world. The painter of this pair of vases would likely have been influenced by the Romantic literature and music of the early nineteenth century, a period of rising tourism when Western artists traveled widely to East Asia, the Middle East, and North Africa.
