Abstract

This dissertation combines art historical analysis and provenance researchand by doing so, investigates the origin order and content of the coloured versions of the Huangchao Liqi Tushi. In addition, by applying art historical understandings to the provenance research, this dissertation has tried to give some more accurate suggestions for the provenance gaps. Finally, by analysing the social experience of the object, this dissertation further investigates the changing identities of the Huangchao Liqi Tushi from a Qing imperial commission to the looted objects and finally a museum object for display.
