TATM presents A Day on the Grand Canal with the Emperor of China (film)

Director Philip Haas and artist David Hockney, together with the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, invite you to join them on a magical journey through China via a marvelous 72-foot long 17th-century Chinese scroll entitled The Kangxi Emperor's Southern Inspection Tour (1691-1698), scroll seven. As Hockney unrolls the beautiful and minutely detailed work of art, he traces Emperor Kangxi’s second tour of his southern empire in 1689.
