Dream of the red Chamber was written by Cao Xueqin in the 18th century, under the reign of Qianlong Emperor, of the Qing dynasty. This 120-chapter long narrative recounts the life of several Chinese aristocratic families, in particular of the Jian clan.
This edition offers the 230 paintings of artist Sun Wen (ca. 1818 - 1904) realized for Dream of the red Chamber, accompanied by descriptive notices of the original book. From nobility to servants, through bonzes and merchants, the images give a precise description of everyday and social life, detailing meals, entertainments and ceremonies that were part of the days of the great Manchu families in the imperial China.
