Hi my name is***** you for your question. The name and dates match:
LANG Shih-Ning (1688-1766)
CASTIGLIONE Giuseppe , LANG Shining 郎世宁/郎世寧
Lang Shih-ning was the Chinese name used by Giuseppe Castiglione, a native of Milan, Italy. At the age of 19, he entered the Jesuit order as a novitiate, and his early training also included painting and architectural planning. He was later sent to China, where he arrived in 1715. His skills as an artist thereupon came to the attention of the court and he served under three emperors (Yung-cheng, K'ang-hsi, and Ch'ien-lung) as a painter. He combined his previous art training with his studies of Chinese painting to create a hybrid technique that fused the essence of both traditions and that had an influence on court style at the time. He excelled at painting figures, birds-and-flowers, animals, and landscapes.
He is best known for his paintings rather than wood carving of which there are no records.
