William Alexander (10 April – 23 July ) was an English painter, illustrator and engraver. The hallmarks of his work, usually executed in watercolours, were clearness and harmony of colour, simplicity and taste in composition, grace of outline, and delicacy of execution. He accompanied the Macartney Embassy to China in Prints of his work were reproduced from engravings. Using written records, paintings, figurines, and actual garments and fabrics when available, the authors have created a chronological record of Chinese dress and hair styles from ancient times to the 20th century. Dress of the upper classes, military, common people, and of both men and women are included. In addition to photographs of relevant historical artifacts, brightly colorful drawings.
