——Exhibition Overview——


Part V. Virtual Travel


"With a plot of wolfberries and chrysanthemums to go with my wine, I rove the landscapes covering the walls while reclining in my bed."


The ancient Chinese people were passionate about landscapes. However, unable to tour on their own due to the long distances involved or because of illness, they painted mountains and rivers on scrolls so that from time to time they could invite friends to scrutinize them, whether they were distant views, deserted groves or an uninhabited wilderness. That was how they enjoyed scenery through virtual travel.


Images of mountains and rivers in those paintings derived from the personal impressions of artists and were based on the patterns of landscape paintings established in history. Enjoying the scenery depicted in paintings is to replace reality with artistic conceptions, which manifests the wisdom and open-mindedness of ancient Chinese.


Along the winding mountain paths, we pass by quiet and beautiful waterside pavilions and deep valleys; climbing in the mist and drizzle, we see innumerable mountains and valleys; searching and feeling the artistic conceptions; we ponder the memories of mountains and rivers in history.
