In this sumptuous volume, John Vollmer and Jacqueline Simcox showcase 72 objects focused on the emperors of China from the Mactaggart Art Collection at the University of Alberta Museums, one of the foremost collections of Chinese paintings and textiles in the world. Full-colour images and informative text introduce both the works from the collection and how they served as emblems of imperial order and power during the Ming and Qing dynasties (1368-1911). Students, collectors, museum visitors, scholars, historians, and individuals interested in Chinese art will be stirred by the sensuous interplay of hierarchy and design of the painted and textile arts of the Chinese Imperial court, as explored and illuminated in this book.
