Description

Reverse painted glass panels, painted in flowing flower design, decorate the five stacked drawers of this chest. In reverse glass painting, the painting is done “back to front”: details painted first, then larger color areas, and finally a background color. Reverse painting requires great care and skill, as the visual “surface”is painted first then layered over, so errors cannot be corrected. Reverse painting dates to the Middle Ages.
