An Imperial portrait of Consort Chunhui
Attributed to Giuseppe Castiglione, Qianlong period
Oil on gaoli paper, vividly painted in brilliant colours depicting the sitter in front profile from the waist up, her serene expression delicately rendered with full naturalistic attention, her face bright as if from natural sunlight, revealing a young yet dignified woman opulently adorned in the finest quality robes, wearing a black feather hat, pearl earrings and a sumptuous orange-ground embroidered dragon robe, all against a mottled pale grey ground.
