    About this book


The text in “Created in Canton” is in both Chinese and English and the beautiful full-colour photographs found within include 180 plates of watercolours from European collections. This is a comprehensive introduction to the huge number of paintings on pith made as souvenirs for visitors to Canton/Guangzhou in the nineteenth century. It is a testament to the dedicated research and perseverance of the author, Ifan Williams, who has created a record of these watercolours and by doing so has encouraged schools in Guangzhou to revive the art of painting on pith. This book will appeal to anyone with an interest in the culture and history of Canton and in relations between China and the West arising from the ‘China trade’.
