In martial attire, the valiant Qianlong emperor wears corslet, helmets and rides a steed with weapons, thus displaying the military spirit of the Qing emperors. In the realistic painting, the Emperor s facial feature has the effect of three dimensions. Chinese traditional painting tools and materials are adopted together with composition techniques of Western oil paintings. The resplendent and minute work is basically shaped with colors instead of with lines and is noted for its strong European style. |
