Since the so-called Dong Qichang album was discovered by Berthold Laufer in Xi’an, Shaanxi Province, China at the beginning of last century, several papers have been published about it by scholars such as Laufer himself, Josef Jennes, and Noël Golvers. This article, based on former related research, describes the discovery of Laufer, the contents of the album, the style of the paintings in it, and their European prototypes, and discusses the historical meanings of this album. The author concludes that the painter of this album may not be a Chinese convert and argues that although the quality of these paintings is quite low, they may be regarded as historical sources to deepen our understanding of the history of Sino-European artistic exchanges.
