Cup and saucer with a Prostitute and a Gentleman in an Interior, anonymous, c. 1775 - c. 1799

painting, d 6.7cm × h 5.8cm More details

The scene on the cup and saucer is clearly based on Picart’s print. His elegant, mildly erotic prints were popular models for Chinese porcelain painters. One difference immediately jumps out: compared to the print, the prostitute’s neckline here is far more modest.

This work belongs to Cup and saucer with a Prostitute and a Gentleman in an Interior (AK-NM-13572)
