Making famille rose ceramic plaque painting is more difficult than traditional paper painting, because it has to be fired twice in the kiln and there are risks of cracking or deforming. However, the colour enamels used in ceramic plaque painting are more stable and the texture is stronger. Ceramic plaque painting has more layering and three-dimensional sense than paper painting. Moreover, it can be permanently preserved, avoiding insect bites and weathering.
The maker of this work used the famille rose technique and combined the traditional Chinese meticulous painting style with the western impressionist painting style to depict a painting of flowers and birds with the traditional Chinese theme of the lovesick acacia, and replaced the traditional acacia with an egret. It is a combination of Chinese and Western elements, with innovative and unique style and thus high collection value.
