    Original work of art: Victory in the Pacification of Dzungars and Muslims by Giuseppe Castiglione

    This documentary relates the story of the greatest art creation project of the 18th century between China and Europe. In order to accurately reconstruct the historical context in which the engravings of Victory in the Pacification of Dzungars and Muslims were produced, the curatorial team at the National Palace Museum researched historical records in several countries. The team viewed prints housed in the BibliothПque Nationale de France and original copperplates housed in the Ethnologisches Museum, Germany, and filmed engraving techniques at a printing workshop.
