This imaginative and unprecedented exhibition highlights four of the magnificent chinoiserie tapestries of Chinese Emperor Qianlong, woven after designs by François Boucher at the famous Beauvais Manufactory in 1758-1760. The large and well-preserved textiles shown in Hong Kong form part of royal French commission by King Louis XV, part of which was presented to Qianlong in 1766. These celebrated tapestries are joined by another historic set of culturally related depictions in print.
