Notes

General Note:
This print shows a 19th century Chinese coastal town with the Chinese government offices and European factories. The temple of the Dragon King occupies a prominent position in this scene, referring to the importance of this deity that was said to control the oceans of the world. Unlike most calendars of this genre, this one depicts the spring ox being whipped and led across a bridge, and it also includes additional auspicious dates as well as the eight trigrams inscribed on pagodas. According to Yin Huang the print shows influence of European colouring and use of perspective. The year 1843 is a pivotal point in Chinese history because China was defeated by the British during the Opium War. The resulting Treaty of Nanjing opened Chinese ports to foreign trade. While China believed that riches would flow in from the trade. The title of the print would actually prove to be ironical since what happened in the end was a devastating import of opium against a continuing drain of silver.
