The Irish artist George Chinnery (1774-1852) lived and painted in Macau for over 30 years. This volume brings together colourplates of many of his oils and watercolours of local scenes and personalities. Many informal pencil sketches and margin drawings of animals and passers-by are also reproduced. Chinnery's work gives unique insights into the life of the powerful merchant class and normally unnoticed elements in the life of the Portuguese enclave before the rise of its rival, Hong Kong.
