Snapshot Art

Barry Till

From Visualizing a Culture for Strangers: Chinese Export Paintings from the Nineteenth Century by Barry Till. Export paintings were created as souvenirs for Western tourists by Chinese painters who adopted Western painting techniques to capture “snapshots” of everyday life in China. The paintings were popular from 181 until the 185s, when they were replaced by photographs as the preferred souvenir.
