Ashmolean Museum: From Palace to Studio

Chinese Women Artists, 1900 to the present at Ashmolean Museum, Oxford, until 27 September
Female painters as independent artists with their own incomes, ateliers and international reputations

At the beginning of the 20th century, the palace retainers of China’s Empress Dowager Cixi included a ‘ghost painter’

This accomplished female artist was tasked with producing paintings in the Empress’s name, and only rarely signed her own works.

This exhibition begins with one of her paintings and goes on to document the emergence through the 20th century of female painters as independent artists with their own incomes, ateliers and international reputations.
