The Forbidden City in Monaco: Details of the Screen of the Sixteen Luohans

The Screen of the Sixteen Luohans, presented to Emperor Qianlong by one of his high-ranking dignitaries, was installed in his personal gardens. The public can admire the sixteen disciples of Buddha on one side, and symbolic plants, gilded with gold leaf, on the other. This exceptional work is one of the highlights of "The Forbidden City in Monaco" (La Cité interdite à Monaco) exhibition, which is on show at the Grimaldi Forum.
