——Exhibition Overview——


Part II. Waterside


"The fall seasonal water was pellucid and unfathomable, solemn ambiance made guests feel worry-free."


Water, crystal clear, nourishes all and serves as an invaluable natural resource for human survival. The Chinese people prefer to regard water as the embodiment of many virtues, and expect people to learn from it. Confucius described water as "Like morality, like justice, like Tao, like bravery, like law..."  Lao-Tzu, the philosopher who founded Taoism, said: "Great virtue is like water". They all considered water as the carrier of exemplary morals.


Besides, lines about rivers are extremely common in ancient poems. For example, "The sky at sunset like a colored brocade, the river calm like a skein of white silk." "The river winds around the fragrant islet,  where the blooming flowers in her light all look like sleet." "Long river runs beyond return and winds drive yellow clouds hundreds of miles, a snow-peak whitely circled by the swirl of a nine-fold stream." All those lines create innumerable artistic conceptions of rivers.


In the history of landscape paintings, artists never stinted in their efforts to depict such great waterways as the Yangtze River, Yellow River, Qiantang River, Taihu Lake, Dongting Lake and even the East China Sea, leaving us numerous masterpieces.
