Simbai Area Shield

Simbai Area Shield
Maker unknown
Wood,  blackened encrusted patina
1260 x 480mm

From the late Denis Dutton Collection. Webb’s Auction, March 2011. Chartwell acknowledges the original maker and welcomes contact from them via the website feedback form if approvals for image use need to be further obtained.

Relates to other shields in the collection and their connection to the idea of the rectangular flat painting support in Western painting practice - a synergy there with paintings in the collection.
