    On loan to the Iris & Gerald Cantor Center for Visual Arts at Stanford University, March 2000-February 2003

    Imperial Noble Consort Dunhui (Dunhui Huangguifei) came to the Forbidden City as a 16 year old consort of the Tongzhi Emperor in 1872, two years prior to the Emperor's death. A Manchu by birth and a member of the Silin-Gioro (西林覺羅) clan, consort Dunhui was allowed to retain her noble title and continue living in the Forbidden City after the fall of the Qing dynasty in 1912, along with the deposed Emperor Puyi and the other members of the imperial family. On March 12, 1913 she was bestowed the title Ronghui Huangguifei, the name she uses on the seal of the calligraphy here, hence dating it to the early years of the Republic period.
