Quantcast
The Musicality of Chinese Poetry and Calligraphy in the World of the Qianlong Emperor

Enter the Forbidden City and explore the lavish retirement residence of one of China's most extravagant monarchs, the Qianlong Emperor (r. 1736--95), who presided over China's last dynasty, the Qing, at the zenith of its power and wealth. Court culture comes to life through a concluding presentation of Chinese poetry and calligraphy.

Ben Wang, Senior Lecturer of Language and Humanities, China Institute in America
