Among the paintings in the Rijksmuseum collection is a faithful 18th-century representation of the Chinese port city of Canton. Recent study of this detailed picture, which stretches more than three metres, reveals it to be one of the earliest of its kind. Comparison of the details in various depictions of Canton and documentary archival research have even made it possible to narrow down the date of this panorama to 1771.
