Gu’s Embroidery

  •  Ying Yu    


In Chinese embroidery history, the Gu’s embroidery (originally a boudoir craft from Lu Xiang Yuan) as a famous brand, was well introduced and accepted during its commercialization. In fact, the Gu’s Embroidery became the synonym of all embroideries at that time, and further exerted a far-reach influence upon the “Four Renowned Embroideries” existing in the Qing dynasty through the modern times. It is really a fun for both painting and embroidery lovers to explore the refined tastes of the Gu’s embroidery and its cultural background, as the fancy art is deemed a height of Ming and Qing embroidery art.
