Book Description Charles E Tuttle, Rutland, 1971. Hardcover. First edition. Oblong Small 4to. Giuseppe Castiglione, Italian painter, Jesuit missionary, arrived in China in 1715 and passed his life at the Court of the Emperors K'ang-hsi, Yung-cheng and Ch'ien-lung. There he became pre-eminent among a group of European missionary-court painters who combined the propagation of the Christian faith (in the face of daunting difficulties) with professional dedication to the artistic commissions of the Emperors. Although trained as a Jesuit, Castiglione was an artist of high accomplishment and in the course of his long stay in Peking (he died there in 1766) he managed to achieve a remarkable synthesis between the traditions and techniques of European painting and those of Chinese Painting. He excelled in religious painting, was famous as a portraitist and genre painter, and his paintings of animals, flowers and landscapes earned him an unprecedented honour, first painter at the Court of the Emperor K'ang-hsi. This book provides a catalogue raisonne of the work of Castiglione (called by the Chinese Lang Shis-ning) as well as an account of the meeting of two contrasted techniques of painting and theories of art. Bound in gold cloth over boards. A near fine copy in a near fine price-clipped dust jacket. Seller Inventory # 13842
