On the contrary, even before their conquest, the Manchus began imitating Chinese ways, and the Qing rulers, particularly Kangxi — and Qianlong —96were well-educated men who were eager to enlist the support of Chinese scholars. They were extremely conservative in their political and cultural attitudes; in artistic taste, their native love of extravagance which the Chinese viewed as barbarous was tempered, ironically, by an equally strong conservative propensity.
The art of the Qing dynastyeven the painting of many of its finest eccentrics and the design of its best gardens, is similarly characterized both by lavish decoration and ornate effects as well as by superb technique and conservative taste.
The dual attraction of the Manchu rulers to unbridled decoration and to orthodox academicism characterized their patronage at court.
In the midth century Castiglione produced a Sino-European technique that had considerable influence on court artists such as Zuo Yigui, but he was ignored by Dong qichang in the shade of critics. His depictions of Manchu hunts and battles provide a valuable visual record of the times.
On the other hand, Manchu emperors saw to it that conservative works in the scholar-amateur style by Wang HuiWang Yuanqi, and other followers of Dong Qichang were also well represented at court, largely putting an end to the conflict at court between professional and amateur styles that had been introduced in the Song — and that played a significant role in the Ming.
In a sense, the amateur style was crowned victor, but it came at the expense of the amateurism that had defined its purpose, given the prominent role these artists enjoyed at court. This politically effective aspect of Manchu patronage was not necessarily a specifically calculated strategy; rather, it was a natural extension of their concerted attempts to cultivate and recruit the scholar class in order to establish their legitimacy.
The Qianlong emperor was the most energetic of royal art patrons since Huizong of the Song, building an imperial collection of more than 4, pre-Qing paintings and calligraphy and cataloging them in successive editions of the Shiqubaoji. In the works of most of these artists and of those who followed their lead, composition became routinized, with little in the way of variation or genre detail to appeal to the imagination; fluency of execution in brushwork became the exclusive basis for appreciation.
Wang Shiminwho had been a pupil of Dong Qichang, retired to Taicang near modern Shanghai at the fall of the Ming, making it the centre of a school of scholarly landscape painting that included his friend Wang Jian and the younger artist Wang Hui.
At court, Wang Yuanqi rose to high office under the Kangxi emperor and served as chief compiler of the imperial painting and calligraphy catalog, the Peiwenzhai Shuhuapu.

He was the most prominent of the artists who came to be known as the Eight Masters of Nanjing. This group was only loosely related stylistically, though contemporary painters from Nanjing did share solidity of form derived from Song prototypes and, possibly, from the influence of Western art.
Two artists, both members of the deposed and decimated Ming royal family, stood out among these Individualist masters and left, albeit belatedly recognized, the most enduring legacy of all. Known by a sequence of names, perhaps designed to protect his royal identity, Zhu Daor Bada Shanren, suffered or at least feigned a period of madness and muteness in the s.
He emerged from this with an eccentric style remarkable for its facility with extremes, alternating between a wet-and-wild manner and a dry, withdrawn use of brush and ink.
His paintings of glowering birds and fish casting strange and ironic glances, as well as his structurally interwoven studies of rocks and vegetation, are virtually without precedent in composition, although aspects of both the eccentric Xu Wei and Dong Qichang are discernible in his work.
He traveled widely as an adult in such varied artistic regions as the Huang Mountains district of Anhui province and Nanjing and finally settled in the newly prosperous city of Yangzhouwhere in his later years he publicly acknowledged his royal identity, renounced his Buddhist status, and engaged in professional practices.
His work has a freshness inspired not by masters of the past but by an unfettered imagination, with brush techniques that were free and unconventional and a daring use of colour.
The art of Zhu Da and Daoji was not firmly enshrined, however, until the late 19th century, when a new individualist thrust appeared in Shanghai in response to the challenge of Western culture.
