Ancient Chinese Artists Give Advice On How Not To Get Infected With Coronavirus
A series of portraits with characters from the Beijing Opera has received a new vision. The characters put on masks and give instructions in the form of a libretto.
Wise artists advise to put on a mask, do not meet anyone and measure temperature in time.
Originally painted by unidentified artist, these hundred portraits of Peking opera characters from the late 19th–early 20th century collected by The Metropolitan Museum of Art.
“In the opera boom of the late nineteenth century, albums were turned to a new purpose: documenting the variety and vibrancy of stage culture in all its multicolored splendor. This album records in detail the makeup and costume of one hundred characters drawn from nine plays. Each character is identified with an accompanying inscription, and the plays are named at the top right of nine of the leaves in slightly larger script.”
