Title: European Scenes on Chinese Art. 


Featuring 70 examples of Chinese works of art that bear European scenes, some previously unrecorded, this exhibition catalogue traces the beginnings and the development of the representation of European scenes on Chinese works of art produced between the Kangxi (1662-1722) and the Jiaqing (1796-1820) periods. In many instances, this catalogue offers a fascinating comparison of a particular European Scene depicted on a piece of porcelain or work of art alongside the original source copied by the Chinese artists.
