——Exhibition Overview——


Part III. Viewing Landscape


"In Nature's bosom remains the historical site, my friends and I now in our turn climb to the heights."

 

The phrase "scenic spots" carries rich cultural connotations. The longer the history, the richer the connotations, for people never stop enriching them with decency and emotions. It is precisely because of the praise lavished by generations of refined scholars that humanism could be preserved, giving more vitality to those scenic spots. Orchid Pavilion and Red Cliff, for example, won a widespread reputation and respect owing to the paeans of praise in literature or calligraphy masterpieces.


 "Eight Great Sights of Yanjing", "Eight Great Sights of Shu", "Eight Great Sights of Yandang Mountain" and "Scenic Spots of Jiangzuo", for example, are all landscapes formed in certain historical periods, redolent with specific local culture and historical memories. Although some have broken down, we can still see their past splendor in paintings.
