Double silk → “Autumn Court Baby Play” and “Winter Baby Play” are both composed of left and right double silk, and the screen size is very similar. In this microscopic observation of the two silk paintings, the similarity of each section of the silk texture is very high, which can be inferred as a group work. /Plants in the painting → “Autumn Court Playing with Babies” Lotus, Chrysanthemum, Duck Toe Grass&”Winter Day Playing with Babies” Plum, Camellia, Bamboo/Black Lacquer Round Bench → “Autumn Court Playing with Babies” There are two black round stools painted with white patterns. Since there are few lacquerware in the Southern Song Dynasty, the black painted round stools in this painting are often regarded as important references. The ornamentation technique on black lacquer is called “mother of pearl”, but because there is no pearl shell luster, it may be related to the “flat off” technique. The decorative techniques of the two kinds of lacquerware are: the former is to stick pearl shells on the lacquer body, and the latter is to stick gold and silver foil, and then paint after drying. /Children’s clothing → The girls in the Autumn Court Drama are slightly older than the boys.
