Constrained by feudal ethics and secular ideas, Chinese women living in the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911) were often confined to the inner courtyards of deep houses. But it didn’t stop them from enjoying life and creating beauty. The online version of “Chinese women of the Qing Dynasty” presented by Beijing Art Museum showcases a number of historical relics and sheds light on their daily lives, including their clothing (robes, outer coats, waistcoats, skirts, pants), household items (cups, plates, bowls, stoves, vases, fans, mirrors), embroideries and a small number of calligraphies and paintings. The presentation takes you closer to a full appreciation of the gorgeous women of those years in their prime of life.
