Biography   School of China Trade


19th century China Trade paintings of clipper and other merchant ships plying between American, English, Continental and Chinese ports were painted by Chinese artists who, starting in the late 18th century, had mastered the western style of painting, some under the tutelage of western artists residing in Chinese ports, particularly Macao, others simply as masterful copyists.  These Chinese painters often would pre-paint canvases with backgrounds featuring Chinese harbors (particularly Hong Kong), Canton and Whampoa, or the open ocean, either stormy or calm. They would then literally row out to arriving ships and pitch their paintings to captains or super-cargos (a ship's commercial agent). (Antiques Counil)
