|Na Zhiliang zhu 那志良著.|
Examines the early Qing dynasty studio-reproduction (yuanben 院本) of a full-color handscroll held at the National Palace Museum in Taipei, depicting the city of Bianjing during the Qingming festival. (NOT the earlier, Song-era black-and-white scroll attributed to Zhang Zeduan 張擇端). This color version was painted for the young Qianlong Emperor in 1736. "A City of Cathay" is an 11-meter handscroll by artists of the Qing court. It depicts a captivating vision of urban life centuries earlier in the Northern Song capital (modern Kaifeng), on the day of the springtime Qingming festival.
