    About

    A fine art print of 'One Hundred Children' by the Chinese artist Yungu, dated to 1743 (during the Qing Dynasty).

    ‘One Hundred Boys’ was a popular theme in Chinese art expressing the wish for abundant offspring to assure the continuation of family lineages.

    This imposing print in the format of a hanging scroll was executed by impressing three printing blocks from the top to the bottom on a large sheet of paper.

    More about this artwork

    The lower part of the print shows children at play in a courtyard.

    To the top, lanterns indicate night time and the celebration of the Lantern Festival on the fifteenth day of the first month of the new year according to the Chinese lunar calendar. Prunus blossoms stand for the early spring.

    The structure of the open pavilion and spacious terrace in the middle section is rendered in vanishing-point perspective and conveys depth.

    The top section bears an inscription with the title, 'One Hundred Boys', and the nickname of the artist, which states that he worked in the Western style.

    Prints of this architectural complexity using fixed-focus perspective and very fine linear shading in the manner of copperplate engravings clearly suggest a knowledge of Western images introduced through Jesuits at court.

    Cityscapes of this kind became particularly popular in the eighteenth century and were mostly produced in Suzhou. Many have been preserved in Japan.
