Early 19th century

A Chinaman stands holding his long beard in one hand, while his other hand pulls back the edge of his loose coat. He wears a wide, shallow conical hat, his loose straight hair flowing over his shoulders like a cape. His mouth is open and his eyes convey an air of animation that is enhanced by the turn of his body and flow of his robes. The sense of confidence and swagger suggest he too may be a merchant, like the preceding entry.
