煜呱(活跃于19世纪40年代至19世纪70年代)是广州最重要的艺术家之一,他专门从事外销绘画,主要服务于定期访问广州的欧美商人。他中文原名无从考证。他在广东的店铺位于老街34号,并于1845年左右在香港皇后大道开了一家分店。除此之外,人们对这位艺术家的身世知之甚少。

 

这些画涵盖了各种各样的观点和主题:前两幅画展示的是中国皇帝和皇后的肖像。突出的是整版的广州和黄埔锚地、上海、澳门、厦门的景色,以及广州著名的中国园林的壮观景色。此外,还有中国帆船的形象,一些花卉、水果、昆虫、鸟类和风俗场景。所有的画作都是用水粉在结实的西方纸上精心绘制的。

 

这套合集是煜呱最好的作品之一,它生动、丰富、全面地描绘了一个西方商人在广州期间所遇到和珍惜的一切。它有同时期的布装装订,而布装又以同时期的丝绸封面包裹,上面绣满了蓝色的花朵和蝴蝶。

CHINESE EXPORT WATERCOLOURS OF SUPERIOR QUALITY

YOUQUA          Album showing Treaty Ports, Costumes, Ceremonies, Junks, Flowers&Birds, as well as Gardens in and around Canton. 50 fine gouache paintings, each measuring 31.5x24cm, some captioned in pencil in the margin. Small folio. Bound in contemporary embroidered silk. Very minor worming, slightly shaken and rubbed, inner hinges broken, view of Macao with a faint tea-cup stain, but overall in very good condition, with tissue guards on facing page. Label on front pastedown “Youqua, Painter, Old Street No. 34, Queen’s Road, No. 107.” [Canton], n.d. [but ca. 1850].  

 

Youqua (active 1840s-1870s) was one of the foremost artist working in Canton where he specialised in export paintings catering largely to merchants from Europe and America who regularly visited Canton. His original Chinese name is still not known. His shop in Canton was located on No. 34 Old Street and around 1845 he also opened a branch on Queen’s Road in Hong Kong. Otherwise very little is known about the circumstances of artist.

 

The paintings cover a wide variety of views and subjects: The first two images show portraits of the Chinese Emperor and Empress. Outstanding are the full-page views of Canton and the Whampoa anchorage, Shanghai, Macao, Amoy, as well as some spectacular views of noted Chinese gardens in Canton. Furthermore, there are images of Chinese junks, several of flowers, fruits and insects, birds, and genre-scenes. All of the paintings are meticulously executed in gouache on strong Western paper.

 

The album ranks amongst the best works by Youqua, it paints a vibrant, colourful, and comprehensive view of everything that a Western trader would have encountered and cherished during his time in Canton. It is bound in a contemporary cloth binding which is in turn covered by a contemporary silk cover, richly embroidered with blue flowers and butterflies.
