These exquisite paintings catch China as Europeans idealized it in the late nineteenth century: elegant home life, Qing imperial troops performing martial arts in their colorful uniforms, acrobatics and gem-like paintings of fish, animals and birds. The delicacy and brilliance of the paintings is stunning, like a perfect dream of far-off Cathay.
