Barbarian Tropes Framed Anew by Tamara Bentley

Professor Bentley's talk examines three Chinese incised lacquer folding screens produced between 1665 and 1800. All three screens include segments depicting Europeans hunting exotic animals and parading with gifts; two screens specifically indicate that the Europeans are Dutch.  Analysis highlights the ways in which these Chinese screens borrowed foreigner  imagery from earlier Japanese Nanban screens, and also from earlier paintings of Mongols hunting, and those barbarian  constructs were even marketed back to Europe.
