Remark: Good seller. In comparison, the use of oil as a medium is relatively new. Introduced to the Ching (Qing) Imperial court, oil painting was perceived as a Western novelty by the Qing emperors like Kangxi, his son Yongzheng, and his grandson Qianlong. Talented Western Jesuit priests familiar with European painting techniqes, such as Sickleparth, Attiret, Castiglione and Panzi, served in the palace and drew portraits for the emperors. However, oil painting remained a curiosity and novelty. This is not to say that these Jesuit artists were not appreciated. In fact, they were expected to work with traditional Chinese painting materials, and as a result, their work was a synthesized Sino-European style

Details: The art dates back about 3,700 years to the Yin Dynasty and has its origin in the cutting of oracle inscriptions on tortoise shells. It flourished in the Qin Dynasty of 22 centuries ago, when people engraved their names on utensils and documents (of bamboo and wood) to show ownership or authorship. Out of this grew the carving of personal names on small blocks of horn, jade or wood, namely the seals as we know them today. The name "cheongsam," meaning simply "long dress," entered the English vocabulary from the dialect of China's Guangdong Province (Cantonese). In other parts of the country including Beijing, however, it is known as "qipao", which has a history behind it.
