From Han (202 BC) to Tang (618-906) Dynasties, artists painted many detailed, elaborate portraits of the royal court. Some of the ancient works depicting court lives of emperors, their ladies, and imperial horses have been preserved in tombs and burial sites. Tang Dynasty also saw the beginning of landscape paintings, often referred to as "Shanshui" ("mountain water”) paintings. These are less precise and allowed for individual freedom in interpreting the subjects.
The time from the Five Dynasties period (220-960) to the Northern Song period (960-1127) is known as the “Golden Age of Chinese Landscape Painting”. Using bold strokes and black lines, artists depicted rolling hills, rivers and stones. Others used softer brushwork to paint peaceful scenes of nature, birds and animals.
In Song Dynasty (960-1279), landscape paintings almost attained a mythical quality with blurred outlines of mountains and mists.
During Yuan Dynasty (1279-1368), painters began adding poetry and calligraphy to their works to express their thoughts and feelings.
Color printing techniques perfected during Ming Dynasty (1368-1644) allowed for illustrated books and manuals on the techniques of Chinese painting.
In the 1700s and 1800s, wealthy patrons nurtured and encouraged new works by promising artists. Some large cities such as Shanghai and Yangzhou became art centers.
Western art exerted their influence on China in the late 1800s and 1900s. Some painters, after studying abroad, returned to their homeland and incorporated the best of both cultures in their art.
