A CARVED ALOESWOOD LIBATION CUP (14 cm) QING DYNASTY, 18TH-19TH CENTURY

This Qing dynasty portrait shows Yinti, Prince Xun (1688-1755), as an old man. The cataract on his right eye, crows' feet around his eyes, and sunken cheeks all hint at harsh aging. Yinti's wife appears strikingly more idealized. If this painting had been intended as a ritual portrait, a greater attempt at realism might have been made. Instead, it was likely created to celebrate a life event, perhaps an anniversary.
