The time is 1689, the place is China. Emperor Kangxi is touring his southern territories and you're invited on this journey via a detailed antique scroll. It is a rich account of 17th century Chinese life including babies, old men, janitors, fish mongers--people from every walk of life. David Hockney narrates through the 72 feet of this wonderful work, adding a new and interesting dimension to this very fascinating, very accessible piece of art. Hailed by both art critics and historians.
