Summary

Elaine Pearce on the illusion of 3 dimensions in Qing court painting

Description

Creating the illusion of three dimensions on a two-dimensional surface has historically been a goal of some artists both in Europe and China, but utilizing very different approaches. In the early 18th century, a collision of these two traditions occurred, primarily between a supreme connoisseur, the Qianlong Emperor, and an extraordinarily versatile artist, Giuseppe Castiglione, also known as Lang Shining. The marvels in art and architecture that they co-created will be the subject of this lecture.
