Starting in the 18th century Chinoiserie never really has gone out. Several images, not just this one. If you like, check out my archive of posts which stretches back over a year so many lovely images. But if you like something, please share it to your computer as due to a lack of interest I’m taking down the patreon and its files this week. Thanks! Sarah.
