3 beautiful gold foil paintings

Post by bayouart » Apr 26, 2013 5:57 am

I ran across a photo of 3 beautiful gold foil paintings. The owner does not want to sell them. I am looking for 3 very similar pieces of artwork. What can you tell me about these paintings and do you have or can you get anything similar. Thanks!

Looks like art from Inner Mongolia (north central China). I traveled all the way there on the train to Hohhot (the capital of Inner Mongolia) a few years back. I tried as hard as I could to find any descent Mongol artwork, but it just wasn't there. I finally had to leave after a few days.

I usually only handle artwork painted xuan paper and mounted. This is a different media, and from a place where I tried and failed to find artwork. I'm afraid I can't help you. But maybe you can search the web for "Mongol horse paintings" or "Mongolian artwork" and see what you find.
