    Description

    This intriguing pair of Chinese illustrated art prints, titled "Policeman and Prisoner" and "Examination of a Prisoner," offers a rare visual insight into the historical judicial practices of China. The first print vividly captures the tense interaction between authority and detainee, with the policeman's firm posture and the prisoner's evident distress. The second print complements the narrative, depicting the solemn gravity of a prisoner's examination, likely before a magistrate. Both prints are rich in cultural detail, from the traditional attire to the nuanced expressions and body language, reflecting the social and legal customs of the period. Rendered with a deft touch and an eye for storytelling, these prints are not just art; they are a window into the past, making them a valuable acquisition for collectors interested in legal history, Sinology, or ethnographic art.
