Notes

Abstract:
An album of 10 paintings of flowers presented by Puyi (1906-67), the last Emperor of China, to his tutor Sir Reginald Johnston (1874-1938), who was also the first Professor of Chinese at SOAS. The album bears an inscription by the Emperor in his own hand to Johnston on the verso of the front cover and his own seal on the peony painting. The artist, Chen Shu (1612-82), was a literati painter (literati painting combines painting, poetry and calligraphy and aims to reach an intellectual audience) from Jiangsu province near Shanghai who settled in Nanjing in his later years. He produced paintings depicting mainly birds, flowers and insects, but occasionally produced landscape paintings in ink (Text by Yoshiko Yasumura, from the exhibition catalogue: Objects of instruction : treasures of the School of Oriental and African Studies, Anna Contadini, Editor. London : SOAS, University of London, 2007.) ( en )
