Description

Giuseppe Castiglione, S.J. (July 19, 1688 – July 17, 1766) was an Italian Jesuit Brother, missionary in China, painter at the court of the Emperor.
Born in Milan, he studied painting with Carlo Cornara. In 1709, he became a Jesuit and in 1715, he went to China as a missionary. His skill as an artist was appreciated by the Emperor Qianlong and Castiglione spent many years painting various subjects. His style was a unique blend of European sensibility with Chinese technique and themes.
While in China, Castiglione took the name Lang Shining(郎世寧). In addition to his demonstrable skill as a painter, he was also in charge of designing the Western-Style Palaces in the imperial gardens of the Old Summer Palace. He     died in Beijing.
