China’s Art
Answer this: In China in the eighteenth century, the Emperor Qianlong (r.1736–1795) greatly expanded the imperial art collection,
commissioning and acquiring a diverse array of artworks. Consider what the role of patron offered the Emperor, and how art intersected
with his wider aims. Select a maximum of four key works to discuss the implications of the breadth of the Emperor’s activities as a patron of the
arts. Through a study of their visual qualities, present an understanding of the significance of the diversity of his collection within the particular
conditions of his reign.
