Everyone must have seen street sketches when traveling around. These young artists can restore a person’s true face to painting paper in a short world. These painters have studied for a long time. In the feudal period of our country, there was no systematic painting teaching, and the ancient people’s painting skills were not particular about restoration, but artistic conception.
China in ancient times was a mysterious place, because we ca n’t learn about history from real pictures, we can only speculate from unearthed cultural relics. Especially for those famous historical figures in history, modern people have no chance to understand their true appearance, and there are no more reduced portraits left behind. To say a generation of emperors, how could there be no painter to paint portraits for them? Naturally, the artist skills in the imperial palace are naturally superb, but because most of ancient China were ink paintings, and the”models” who painted were emperors, many emperor portraits were beautified.
In the Qing Dynasty, as the world became closer and closer, there were foreigners in the palace. During the reign of Qianlong, there was a Western artist who painted Qianlong’s”real appearance”, leaving precious research materials for future generations.
The Twelve Emperors of the Qing Dynasty, Qianlong was a lucky one. Although his father, Emperor Yongzheng, also managed the country very well, he passed the fierce battle of nine sons, and the emperor of Qianlong was passed on to him by Yongzheng. Coupled with Yongzheng laid a solid foundation for the Qing Dynasty, Qianlong was able to create a prosperous world. At that time, the Qing Dynasty implemented a closed-door policy and knew nothing about the development of the world, but Qianlong knew very well about a Western artist in the palace. This artist was named Lang Shining and was the royal artist of the royal family.
Lang Shining ’s painting style is completely different from that of Chinese painters, so Qianlong and concubines like it a lot. Let him paint for himself. In fact, Castiglione also knows how to survive in the palace. When painting for the emperor and concubine, he pays more attention to freehand, which is to beautify them and highlight their spirit. Castiglione stayed with Qianlong for a long time and was very familiar with his appearance. He quietly painted a”Winter-length Portrait of Emperor Qianlong” with Italian ink and wash, which is also the closest in history to the real appearance of Emperor Qianlong.
Ancient emperor was originally out of reach of modern people, but the appearance of Emperor Qianlong The Italian painter stole the painting and also satisfied many people’s curiosity. This painting is placed in Yinchuan Art Museum. Netizens:It looks like this! Qianlong in the painting is very different from what we saw in the TV series. Everyone expressed great disappointment.
