He became a Jesuit missionary at the age of twenty-seven and went to China, where he served as a court painter under three Ch'ing emperors, namely K'ang-hsi, Yung-cheng and Ch'ien-lung. He was skilled in human figure and bird-and-flower paintings, and became the favorite of the painting circles of the times with his minutely realistic works utilizing the Western style of painting. This is the finest collection of small works representing his true character. ADDITIONAL IMAGES AVAILABLE UPON REQUEST. CERTIFICATE OF AUTHENTICITY INCLUDED. ARTWORK IN EXCELLENT CONDITION.
