Chinese Arts enthusiast, Eileen Deeley, explains the history of this fabulous work in a special lecture at the Siam Society on July 21.
Created by a Song Dynasty artist in the 12th century, the work is regarded as China's "Mona Lisa". The entire piece was painted in a handscroll (panoramic) format and the content depicts the lifestyles of all levels of the society, from emperor to peasant.
The "Qingming Festival" was stolen several times and finally returned to the government. It is currently on display at Hong Kong's Museum of Art.
Admission to the lecture, which starts at 10.30pm, costs Bt550 per person and concludes with a Peking duck banquet lunch.
