Themes in Chinese Paintings



Chinese Painting Themes

In contrast to Western styles of art and painting, Chinese artists created the style of painting in themes such as landscape, bamboo etc. Chinese theme painting has a very long history in Chinese art and, as is traditional, the majority of Chinese artists still specialize in just one or two themes. This creates an effect only possible after years of practice.

Possibly the best known theme in Chinese paintings is that of landscape where a balanced harmony is achieved by the skilful portrayal of rocks and water, mountains and sky, trees and mist. Each theme has its own special meanings which are often used for the enhancement of Feng Shui.

A good Chinese painting in a particular theme is judged by the strength of the feeling it conveys, rather than the subject matter itself. Chinese theme paintings are wonderful, full of meaning, imagination and vitality, and we are pleased to bring this beautiful imaginative realm to your attention. In China owning a painting is a symbol of being knowledgable about the fine arts and culture. This is traditionally known as one of the four signs of the scholar.

Although each Chinese painting is representative of a theme no two paintings are the same. Each is unique and an original work of art in its own right.
