History of the Object
As the then main salt distributing center during the Qing Dynasty, Yangzhou enjoyed a period of prosperity, which brought with it a cultural boom. This resulted in the formation of the Yangzhou School, along with a group of painters known as the Eight Eccentrics of Yangzhou, who broke away from conventions and revolted against narrow mindedness, and consequently had a deep influence on contemporary Chinese paintings.
