We are taking a family vacation during this Thanksgiving week. Anything you order now will be reserved for you, and shipped on Monday Nov 27th.
For the best possible display, this portrait should be professionally framed.
A frame is not included with this artwork!
54cm x 39cm ≈ 21¼" x 15¼"
This painting depicts some hard workers as they harvest wheat from the fields.
This painting is untitled and unsigned, but the artist is from Huxian County in the Shaanxi Province. This is the area famous for producing this style of primitive folk art.
This painting will go nicely with a standard 18" x 24" picture frame and some nice custom-cut matting of your choice.
No need for expensive custom-framing.
However, I recommend professional framing and matting for the best presentation of this artwork.

Gary's random little things about China:
If you are from my generation, you may remember the video game called "Frogger". It involved crossing a busy road while narrowly dodging cars and truck, often both in front of and behind you at the same time.
Well you can play real live Frogger every time you cross the street in China. It is perfectly normal to cross a four or six-lane road, one lane at a time. You stand motionless on the white, dashed line between lanes as cars and trucks whiz by you on both sides with only inches to spare. When the next lane is clear, you advance (there is no retreat in this game, that could get you killed, since drivers in China would never expect that).
If you did this in America, drivers would come to a screeching halt and think you were crazy (they might even tell you so, using colorful words and hand gestures). It is simply a different culture, or rather a different way of doing things in modern Chinese culture.
