Weighty catalogue of a very interesting exhibition held at the Staatliche Kunstsammlungen Dresden comparing the court art of the Qing dynasty Chinese emperors with that of the rulers of the Saxon-Polish Court during the period 1644-1795 which in China corresponded with the establishment of the Qing dynasty through to the death of the Qianlong Emperor. It thus examines and contrasts the art and achievements of the Saxon-Polish rulers with the Kangxi, Yongzheng and Qianlong Emperors. Major loans from the Gugong Museum in Beijing are exhibited alongside fine items from the rich holdings of the Dresden collections. Extensive text in German.
