This is the opening of the book "The Winning Picture of the Peaceful Western Regions". The picture shows the 51-year-old Emperor Qianlong holding a celebration banquet for the generals and soldiers of the Western Expedition in the first month of Qianlong's 26th year (1761). The generals of the Western Expedition and the invited princes and nobles of Manchu, Mongolia and Hui lined up in front of the Ziguang Pavilion, kneeling down to meet the Emperor Qianlong who came by shoulder public opinion. The scene was solemn and warm. As the book "The Winning Pictures of the Peaceful Western Regions" is based on the creation of Western painters and carved by the French, it has a strong Western painting style. The pavilions, treasure tents, trees, bridges and towers painted in the picture are realistic and full of three-dimensional sense. The images of Emperor Qianlong and his officers and soldiers have lost their own characteristics of portraits, and have the look of Westerners with deep eyes and high noses.
After the Western Han Dynasty, the Western Regions were the general name of the area west of Yumenguan in Gansu Province. By the end of the 19th century, the name of the Western Regions was abandoned. During the Qianlong Dynasty, the brothers of Dawazi, Amur Sana, Hui and Zhuo Muhuo Ji, who were located in the western region, fought against the Qing Dynasty successively. Emperor Qianlong sent his troops to the West and put an end to their rebellion. Emperor Qianlong, in order to carry forward the indomitable spirit of the generals and men who feared hardship and bravery and were good at fighting, instructed the Western painters Lang Shining, Wang Zhicheng, Ai Qienmeng and Ander Yi to create a Book of Battle Maps for the Peace of the Western Regions (totally 16 pages). After the painting was completed, Emperor Qianlong ordered Governor Li Shiyao of Guangzhou and Guangzhou to send the draft of "Winning the Peace of the Western Regions" to France in order to make the achievements of the Qing Dynasty stand out in the history books and carry forward the military power. The copperplate was made by the French court craftsmen Kesheng and Leba who mastered the techniques of copperplate. After 11 years, the copperplate prints, copperplate prints and original drawings were sent back to China.
