In the end of the 17th Century, a very specific diplomatic relationship was born between China and France, thanks to Louis XIV. In 1686, the King sent French Jesuit fathers in China who occupied a special place at the Emperor’s court thanks to their deep knowledges in astronomy and mathematics.
In 1764, the Jesuit painter Giuseppe Castiglione (1688–1766) was commissioned to prepare sketches for sixteen illustrations of Qing military conquests. These were sent to Europe on the orders of the Qianlong Emperor (r. 1735–1796), eventually finding their way to France, where they were etched onto copper plates used for printing.
