Michael Shen Fuzong was a Christian convert, brought to Europe as part of a campaign to gain support for the Jesuit missions in China, to which James II as a Roman Catholic was keen to show his favour. The portrait of Shen has long been recognised as one of the glories of James II's short reign, and a key image in the growing fascination with China in the West.
