China, erotic fan, 19th century.
Rare Chinese fan with an erotic subject. It shows two couples in a garden adorned with a pierced rock. The one on the right is lying under a mat placed under a willow, the one on the left is seated on an armchair under a banana tree and is accompanied by a servant.
It is probably an illustration of Jin Ping Mei, the greatest Chinese erotic novel.
Inks and pigments on paper, bone and palm sticks, original rivet.
