One Hundred Horses was drawn by Lang Shining during the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911).
Lang was a Jesuit, he was born in Italy in 1688 with birth name Giuseppe Castiglione.

of shading and atmosphere perspective.

postures. They are kneeling, standing, eating and running on the grassland – staying alone
