Link to images of Old Summer Palace

The “40 Scenes of the Yuanmingyuan,” commissioned by the Qianlong emperor in 1744, were created by two court artists, Shen Yuan and Tangdai, and calligrapher Wang Youdun. Poems by the emperor accompanied each scene, but are not reproduced here.  Images accompanying the map take time to download but are worth while to see the magnificence of the Old Summer Palace.
