Did You Know?

Refined porcelains produced in Jingdezhen kilns were sent to Beijing palace workshops to be decorated in falangcai technique under direct imperial supervision.


The flower-and-bird painting in this vase was intricately executed in colored enamels (falangcai), with careful modeling, shading, and blending of colors reflecting European influences through missionary-artists at the Qing court. The Jesuit artist Giuseppe Castiglione (1688–1766), in particular, exerted tremendous impact at the Qianlong academy.
