General Note:
This print commemorates the subjugation of the outer provinces of Tibet. From the inscriptions scattered throughout the print we learn that the Tibetans welcome the Chinese army and that the Tibetan government gladly surrendered. The Tibetan inner heartland is depicted in the far distance and shows the intention of the Chinese army. When the Qing dynasty fell in 1911 Tibet had declared her independence. The following year the Chinese Republican government decided that steps should be taken to regain control of Tibet. In a series of military campaigns led by the Chinese military governor Yin Changheng the outer provinces were quickly subdued and the Chinese would march on to Central Tibet.
