During the late nineteenth century, the Qing dynasty was dealing with serious problems from both within and outside the empire. The Chinese Catholic communities experienced much hardship. This was especially so during the Taiping Rebellion and the Boxer Uprising. By the end of the nineteenth century, photography has become popular in China. The Empress Dowager Cixi even bolstered her image after the negative effects of the Boxer Uprising by a series of photographs featuring her dressing up as Guanyin. These images influenced the production of a painting at Donglu, Hebei, where Mary was shown dressed in Chinese clothing, as though she was an empress.
