Siik Scarf Giuseppe Castiglione- One Hundred Horses in a Landscape

You wouldn’t believe this silk painting originated from an Italian around 300 years ago.


Giuseppe Castiglione郞世寧 (19 July 1688 – 17 July 1766), was an Italian Jesuit brother and missionary in China, where he served as an artist at the imperial court of three emperors – the Kangxi, Yongzheng and Qianlong emperors. He painted in a style that is a fusion of European and Chinese traditions


The most important early work by Castiglione, One Hundred Horses in a Landscape (百駿圖). It was painted in 1728 for the Yongzheng emperor. The painting was executed using tempera on silk in the form of a Chinese handscroll of nearly eight meters in length. It was largely done in a European-style in accordance with the rules of perspective, and with a consistent light source.
