Cover. Detail from a two-century old embroidered and brocade-mounted Chinese silk panel showing a phoenix and a flaming red sun amid elaborate cloud rolls, various floral designs and other elements. This panel is in the collection of Charlotte Horstmann Ltd. Silk-weaving, embroidery and tapestry have always been viewed by the Chinese as an auxiliary art of painting, and that is why the motifs found in antique decorated silks are exactly the same as those in scrolls.
