Giuseppe (1688) Castiglione Sold at Auction Prices

Painter, b. 1688 - d. 1766

(b Milan, 19 July 1688; d Beijing, 16 July 1766) Italian painter, and architect; active in Portugal, Italy and China. In his youth Giuseppe Castiglione studied painting in Italy under Carlo Cornara at the Botteghe degli Stampator studio. The painter Andrea Pozzo, a member of the Society of Jesus at Trento, also influenced the young artist. At the age of 19, he entered into the Jesuit order and traveled to Genoa for additional training. At the age of 27, he was sent as a missionary Beijing, China; along the journey he stopped to complete wall paintings in Jesuit churches in Coimbra, Portugal and Macao, China. Painting under the Chinese name of Lang Shih-ning, his skill as an artist eventually allowed him to serve as court artist under the emperor Ch’ien-lung. The Jesuit artist also served at the Imperial Ch’ing court under the successive emperors: Kangxi, and Yongzheng. Castiglione forged a new artistic style combining his western training of shading and atmospheric perspective, suggesting depth and realism, with the brushwork and traditional themes of Chinese art. Castiglione died in Beijing in 1766; he is buried in the European Missionary Graveyard in Beijing. He is the only Western artist included in Chinese imperial collections. Castiglione’s paintings are visible today on over forty Chinese stamps as well as in the Beijing and Taipei Museums.

Reference about paper: Paper is a thin nonwoven material traditionally made from a combination of milled plant and textile fibres. The first paper-like plant-based writing sheet was papyrus in Egypt, but the first true papermaking process was documented in China during the Eastern Han period (25–220 AD), traditionally attributed to the court official Cai Lun. This plant-puree conglomerate produced by pulp mills and paper mills was used for writing, drawing, and money. Besides its use for writing and books, paper was used to produce topographical and military maps from the Han dynasty onwards. Drawn to a reasonably accurate scale, they included colour-coding and symbols for local features and included specific areas of enlarged scale. Other uses of paper included as packaging for delicate items such as medicine and as wrapping paper, especially for parcels of tea. Paper was widely used to make hats, stiffened it was used for armour, and thinned it could be used for windows. There were paper screens, sheets, curtains, clothes, and, eventually, money. Paper was so highly valued in ancient China that it was used to pay tribute and taxes to the state during the Tang dynasty (618-907 CE). The Tang also imposed a colour code on the use of paper, with white paper being reserved for legal documents, yellow for government purposes, and blue for communications with Taoist temples. Sheets of paper came in all sizes and many colour shades. Materials, techniques, and preferences varied from region to region, but there were helpful treatises written on the subject, the earliest being by Su I-chien (957-995 CE). Special paper with an appealing texture, pattern or colouring was reserved for calligraphy and art. These paper types were made using rice, wheat straw, sandalwood bark, hibiscus stalks, and even seaweed.

The last several images represent microscopic photos with x50 magnification, proving that it is hand-painted, and not - a print. Reference about paper: Paper is a thin nonwoven material traditionally made from a combination of milled plant and textile fibres. The first paper-like plant-based writing sheet was papyrus in Egypt, but the first true papermaking process was documented in China during the Eastern Han period (25–220 AD), traditionally attributed to the court official Cai Lun. This plant-puree conglomerate produced by pulp mills and paper mills was used for writing, drawing, and money. Besides its use for writing and books, paper was used to produce topographical and military maps from the Han dynasty onwards. Drawn to a reasonably accurate scale, they included colour-coding and symbols for local features and included specific areas of enlarged scale. Other uses of paper included as packaging for delicate items such as medicine and as wrapping paper, especially for parcels of tea. Paper was widely used to make hats, stiffened it was used for armour, and thinned it could be used for windows. There were paper screens, sheets, curtains, clothes, and, eventually, money. Paper was so highly valued in ancient China that it was used to pay tribute and taxes to the state during the Tang dynasty (618-907 CE). The Tang also imposed a colour code on the use of paper, with white paper being reserved for legal documents, yellow for government purposes, and blue for communications with Taoist temples. Sheets of paper came in all sizes and many colour shades. Materials, techniques, and preferences varied from region to region, but there were helpful treatises written on the subject, the earliest being by Su I-chien (957-995 CE). Special paper with an appealing texture, pattern or colouring was reserved for calligraphy and art. These paper types were made using rice, wheat straw, sandalwood bark, hibiscus stalks, and even seaweed.
