He was good at painting horses, portraits of people, flowers, birds and beasts and specialized in the combination between Western painting techniques and traditional Chinese ink painting, which contribute to a new painting style. During his stay in China, Giuseppe Castiglione created a large number of masterpieces with high historical and artistic value with amazing artistic expression. These works which represented the convergence of Chinese and Western cultures recorded the most brilliant historical achievements of the Qing Empire with wonderful ink painting, vividly representing the prosperity in the prosperous period of Kangxi and Qianlong. Baizi painting is a popular custom theme since the Song Dynasty, it has been deeply respected and loved by emperors and scholars since ancient times, implying both good fortune and longevity.
