The report is devoted to study of paintings of Beijing’s everyday life in the late Qing period. Scientists more often preferred textual and material sources, rather than visual materials. The author offers different approaches to the interpretation of visual materials, as the main source of the study of the everyday life in Beijing. The subjects of the paintings are investigated separately as independent phenomena of the daily life of the Chinese capital. In focusing on the museum space, the visual sources could take a central place, as a link between the textual materials and the museums objects. Studying the phenomena of Beijing life through the visual materials, one can speak of a unified ""image to object to text"" complex. Each constituent part of this complex stays in close connection with others and the absence of any of them would cause loss of a part of the information field.
