Artist Statement:


    Animals featured in Castiglione’s paintings burst into life in this 4K animation, the first of its kind that the National Palace Museum has produced. In this short film, the valiant dogs from Ten Fine Hounds and Long-haired Dog Beneath Blossoms take off on an adventure with the lemur from Cochin Lemur and the deer from Auspicious Roe Deer. By using the special powers of the ten dogs, the animals manage to overcome a series of obstacles and eventually come to appreciate the spirit of Castiglione’s art, a unique combination of Chinese and European techniques. The 4K-resolution animation, created by some of Taiwan’s best animators, brings out the full beauty of Castiglione’s art.
