Exquisite, jewel-like, cabinet paintings of this nature were produced in the 18th and 19th centuries for export to Europe, through the great Chinese ports and in particular Canton. The subject matter included botanical studies, shipping, trades people, domestic scenes and, like the present group, people depicted wearing elaborate Chinese dress.
