About the Illustrator


Jiao Bingzhen was an early Qing dynasty court painter with unknown dates of birth and death. In the Kangxi Period (1661 to 1722), Jiao was appointed Directorate of the Royal Astronomical Observatory. Jiao Bingzhen was good at portraying figures and assimilated the style of Western painting. He highlighted the use of light as well as the elaborate depiction of structures and buildings. Representative works include Ladies-in-Waiting and Husbandmen and Their Wives at the Loom. His works reflect what underlies the age-old and deep-rooted life philosophy of traditional Chinese artists: a longing for hermetic life.
