|Why should I buy Chinese art from your site?|
|Are your paintings and calligraphy original artworks?|
Virtually all of the artworks listed on this site are 100% hand-painted (clearly noted in the description), and many of those are original artworks by definition.
However, though most of the paintings are hand painted it can be very difficult to certify an artwork as original, because some follow the same design principles of artworks created by famous Chinese artists, which enters into a "cloudy" interpretation of a words definition.
This all makes the definition of "Original Artwork" a bit hard to interpret, though in general it may be considered to be a hand-painted artwork designed by an artist. In this sense most of the art listed on this site is original.
The concept of "Original Art" is a bit over rated to say the least, as VERY few artworks are truly original according to a strict reading of the definition of original. This fact is best expressed by a quote from the French author André Maurois who said "No one can be profoundly original who does not avoid eccentricity."
|I've seen other sites selling Chinese paintings for really high prices. Why are your paintings so cheap?|
The short answer is because the majority of artworks listed on this site were created by members of my family in China, or purchased from their friends who are artists and art dealers.
For this reason you will find it difficult or impossible to find the same quality artworks at lower prices anywhere online or offline, even if you visit China yourself.
Read this article I wrote to understand how we can offer you Low Prices on Chinese Art.
|Are all your paintings ready to frame or already framed?|
None of our paintings are framed, but all of them are ready to frame, even the wall scrolls. It is VERY easy to frame any of the scrolls we sell. You simply cut the silk brocade material to the desired size, or remove it completely and add your own matting, the choice is yours.
All of our Chinese calligraphy scrolls are ready to frame too. However, some of our calligraphy paintings are on rice paper only and will need to be mounted to prepare them to be framed. We offer mounting services to prepare paintings on rice paper to be framed, and can apply a silk brocade border in a number of popular colors.
|Why do you sell so many wall scroll paintings?|
It is much easier to ship and store wall scrolls, and many of our customers like the look that a wall scroll provides. However, every wall scroll sold on this site can very easily be framed simply by cutting the painting, and if you like some of the silk border from the scroll. You may then frame the painting as you would any other painting.
For a painting to stand the test of time we certainly recommend framing it, so it will be protected from dust, excess moisture and other elements that can damage the painting. As mentioned above it is quite simple to cut a painting from any of our scrolls and frame it.
|If an artwork is listed as "SOLD" can I get a similar item?|
Often times paintings marked "Sold" on our site are one of a kind original artworks, thus it will always be listed as sold out. However, there are times when we have simply sold all of that item and will be restocking that artwork in the near future.
Even if the painting or wall scroll you want was a one-of-a-kind original we may be able to obtain a very similar painting by the same artist.
