When the Painting Makes You Smile

The original Chinese oil and watercolor paintings in our gallery are beautiful and are chosen because; in some way the paintings spoke to us. When you look at the art presented, envision the painting in the space it will hang. Does the painting make you smile, or in some way inspire an emotion that touches your heart? The Chinese artists paint their landscapes with the impression that the scene is viewed from high in the air, as if seen through the eyes of a bird. The artist brings to the canvas or paper the emotion we feel when looking at their paintings. In traditional and contemporary original Chinese flower and bird paintings sometimes a single flower hangs as if suspended in space, or the flowers and plants of different seasons appear together. This is the detail you can expect in the original Chinese paintings from The HAN Collection and why art from our collection is a good choice for any décor. We are confident that you will find The HAN Collection to be one of the most unique and impressive selections of original Chinese paintings anywhere.

Chinese Peony the Flower of Honor
The original Chinese paintings of the peony, known as the flower of riches and honor and the symbol of wealth and distinction, are beautiful. The Chinese peony has been said to bring good fortune and is also a symbol of love and affection. The tree peony represents the season of spring. In traditional Chinese thought the lotus represents summer, the Chrysanthemum the season of autumn, and the Chinese Wild Plum the symbol of winter. This symbolism is found in most Chinese art.

The Familiar Chinese Chop
On most Original Chinese paintings you will see a symbol in red. This symbol is a seal or chop. The seal/chop is pressed into cinnabar paste, a scarlet red color, and then pressed onto the painting “adding the eye to the dragon”. The Chinese art of seal–engraving can be traced back more than 3,000 years. In ancient Chinese times an emperor or person of high status would apply their seal to the art giving credibility to the artist. Historians have used seals to trace the history and authenticity of a painting.
