Pu Ru, brother of the last emperor of China, Pu Yi, was the most talented painter among the princes of the Qing royal family. After the fall of the dynasty, Pu Ru took degrees in astronomy and biology in Berlin and then taught at the Imperial University in Tokyo in the late 1920s. Returning to China, he taught at the National Art Academy in Beijing, the art college within Beijing University.
