List of Officers
Fragment right: Officer Machang
Fragment left: Officer Doubin a.o.
Overview Officers on the Photo
Officers on the Left Part of the Painting
The four officers identified by name (written in Manchu in gold letters) on the newly resurfaced fragment of the left side are, from left to right, Fulu (1b2), Rongbao, Doubin (1a21) and, to the lower right, Shujintai.
Of these four officers, Doubin is the most important officer. He is leading the ”controlled formation of troops” (see the Qianlong emperors poem unter "Fragment right") on the resurfaced fragment.
And indeed, the formation on the resurfaced fragment is so well ordered that it is at first hard to believe that the static resurfaced left fragment belongs to the almost playful right fragment of the Ethnological Museum of Hamburg.
A. Officer on the upper right: Doubin
The officer in the upper right is the Doubin, 豆 斌.
His portrait was painted for the Ziguang ge as number 21 of the first group of 50 portraits (1a21).
