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: Thus the custom of actors wearing masks began. Though not in general use nowadays, masks are still worn in some traditional operas, such as the local dramas performed by the Bouyei people of Xingyi, Guizhou Province. Such masks may be regarded as living fossils in the history of opera facial make-up. As Chinese dramatic art developed, the drawbacks of wearing masks became increasingly evident, for masks prevented the actors from showing their facial expressions. A vividly painted face, however, enables audiences to see expressions clearly even from a distance, a great advantage in the days when dramatic performances were usually staged in the open air before large crowds. 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.
