A REVERSE PAINTING ON GLASS OF LIBERTY, CIRCA 1800 Chinese School, After Edward Savage (American, 1761-1817), LIBERTY, entire view

Artists and propagandists during the late 18th and early 19th centuries were often inspired by standard iconic images, figures, and symbols displaying revolutionary ideology and republican values. This famous work represents an outstanding example of the integration of these symbols combined within a single, allegorical image.

In this work is the beautiful Lady Liberty as the Goddess of Youth Hebe, wearing a flowing Classical robe, she offers a cup, sustenance to the American eagle whom has descended from the sky; a sunburst illuminating his wings and Liberty. Liberty is attracting light to a darkened world; note that she is positioned before a nearly obscured Doric column; artists were not shy when connecting the new Republican age to the Classical period. Under Lady Liberty’s right foot are symbols of the era's revolutionary sentiments: a key, a royal garter, a broken scepter and chains, this vignette signifying the destruction of the tyrannical bonds that had long given the British monarchy power over Americans. The port of Boston, location of the legendary Tea Party is shown behind Liberty…Boston was also the target of many "Intolerable Acts." The artist included dramatic bolts of lightning reaching from the skies roiling clouds, suggesting the future storm that would cause revolutionary winds of change for Boston and the entire Young Republic. Surmounting the image is the American flag, displaying fifteen stars, flying from a pole crowned with a liberty cap which is seen in many contemporary, revolutionary images.

Literature: A similar Chinese export reverse painting on glass is illustrated in The Decorative Arts of the China Trade,by Carl L. Crossman, The Antique Collector's Club, publishers, p. 217, plate 122.

View area: 23.5-inches by 1/2 x 17.5-inches; Frame: 19.25 x 25.75-inches.
