Catalogue Note

This armchair is one of only two full-sized replicas commissioned for the Special Exhibition of Furniture in Paintings, National Palace Museum, Taipei, 5th October 1996-31st January 1997. Curtis Evarts notes in his review of the exhibition published in Orientations, vol. 28, no. 2, February 1997, p. 71, "One of the works, an anonymous painting attributed to the Song dynasty, portrayed a luohan seated in a low-back armchair...To complement the painting, a replica of the chair was reproduced in new jichi wood, the resemblant form and matching figure of grain providing a tactile link to the past".
