Lang Shih-ning is the Chinese name of the Italian Giuseppe Castiglione. Castiglione entered the Jesuit order at the age of nineteen and studied painting and architecture. At the age of twenty-seven he came to China as a missionary and was called to serve at the Inner Court. Noted for his painting of human figures and flowers and birds, he is particularly famous for his horse paintings.
This painting, selected from Lang Shih-ning's album Immortal Calyxes, Eternal Spring, depicts brilliantly colored peonies swaying in the wind. Painting from life, the artist has used such Western techniques as chiaroscuro and perspective. The results are very realistic.
The creativity of this item is inspired by National Palace Museum's collection, "Immortal Blossoms in an Everlasting Spring, Giuseppe Castiglione, Qing Dynasty".
The picture has gone through high resolution image processing and professional color management, and been printed on the high-quality art paper to reproduce the original warm texture and delicate colors.
