Using ancient hand craft skill to print famous artist's work on 24KT gold foil, this artwork becomes a wonderful cultural gift because of its rich culture meaning.
The mark shown on picture tells the artist who painted the original picture, is Italy born(1688) painteer Giuseppe Castiglione , also known as Lang Shining (郎世寧).
As a missionary who was sent to China, Castiglione earned the appreciation of the Qianlong emperor(r. 1736-1795) and served as an artist for the court, which was a considerable honor for a foreign artist at the time.
Following the taste and tradition of painting in China, Castiglione was able to forge a new style that combined elements with his Western training in art. His paintings were done with Chinese materials but often incorporate Western techniques of shading and atmospheric perspective, imparting a sense of realism to the native themes.
