Along with rapid development in the economy, particularly in port cities, the patronage of art changed greatly during the Qing dynasty. Especially in Shanghai, as it was transformed into a new modern metropolis and the hub of southern China’s cultural and artistic activities, art patronage of a new kind emerged from a new class of art buyers, and was associated with a dramatic increase in the number of painting and fan shops, the emergence of new types of artists’ associations, and the establishment of a thriving market for contemporary art. These features, which appeared in the context of a rapidly commercializing society, resulted directly in changes of subject matter and style in Shanghai painting of the period.
