Your image will be printed using high-quality papers with a high color accuracy, which guarantees that your prints will last a lifetime without fading. Siheyuan, literally meaning quadrangle in Chinese, refers to a common traditional Chinese compound. Such compounds have a history of over 2,000 years. This kind of quadrangular courtyard has historically been the template for most Chinese architecture. Siheyuan construction is always symmetrical. The main house is on the central north-south axis, and the less-important structures are positioned on the west and east sides. Nowadays, most existing siheyuan in Beijing are relics of the last two dynasties: the Ming (1368-1644) and Qing (1644-1911).

In the late Qing dynasty (1644-1911) a Chinese merchant named Huang built a house he called Yin Yu Tang in a remote village in Huizhou in China's Anhui Province. For seven generations, members of the Huang family ate, slept, laughed, cried, married, and gave birth in the house. By the mid-1990s, the surviving family members had moved away, but in 1997 the house was dismantled and re-erected permanently at the Peabody Essex Museum.Yin Yu Tang provides a fascinating, in-depth look at Chinese domestic culture, architecture, craftsmanship, history, and the impact of these influences on individual lives. PEM curator Nancy Berliner, one of the country's foremost experts on Chinese furniture and arts, takes the reader on a tour of this unique homestead providing detail on Yin Yu Tang's architecture, construction methods, decoration, furniture, and family heirlooms. She weaves a story of Chinese domestic life, culture, and the remarkable restoration and reconstruction. --- SKU# 24983 Softcover: 192 pages, full-color photos, maps, charts, and architectural drawings.
