George Chinnery was that providential and all-too-rare combination of the right man in the right place at the right time. But for him, our vision of the China coast in the early years of the nineteenth century would remain deficient, our understanding of Macau less secure and our grasp of its humanity lacking in intimacy.

His was the faithful record not only of the greater panoramas in his oils and watercolours but of every lovingly-captured particular in his sometimes minute pencil sketches.
Chinnery in China presents a portrait of the artist as an old and crotchety but immensely gifted man, just the way Chinnery would have wanted it.
