Gardens of Yuan Ming Yuan

East side of the Palace of the Calm of the Sea, Gardens of Yuan Ming Yuan, Peking, 1783-86 - Giuseppe Castiglione

 “East side of the Palace of the Calm of the Sea, Gardens of Yuan Ming Yuan, Peking, 1783-86”, Giuseppe Castiglione, from: http://www.wikigallery.org/wiki/painting_169853/Giuseppe-Castiglione/East-side-of-the-Palace-of-the-Calm-of-the-Sea%2C-Gardens-of-Yuan-Ming-Yuan%2C-Peking%2C-1783-86

Peony, the flower I would like to write about in my next post, impressed Giusseppe Castiglione already many centuries ago. After discovering this obscure fact I became interested in this Italian Jesuit missionary work. He became painter and architect at the China emperors court at far 18th century and his works  were a graceful blend of two different cultural influences and techniques, an unique time box for the future.  Isn’t it thrilling to see, for example, what the China emperor saw walking down his garden around 1785?
