It was hard to paint the Her Majesty, the Empress Xiao of a fallen dynasty. Even at 50, her beauty was unrivaled. Besotted, her husband's rivals sought her despite the taboo.
Newly widowed and the lost of her country and kin; I felt the sorrow and thus put her in black, the colour that macerates all emotions...
In spite of it all, her dignity prevails.
-the Court Painter
