hand painted in China
The art of the Chinese scroll painting dates back at
least 4,000 years. This art form is
considered by many people as the highpoint aesthetically speaking during the
cultural history of China civilization. The Chinese use special brushes and inks to create calligraphy, which are the same
tools used for the scrolls.
the designs include subjects such as animals, birds, flowers, people,
landscapes, and simple calligraphy that might include inspirational words or
messages. Although wonderful and
talented painters are from all over China, the majority come from the Zhejiang
province, which is where this form of painting was born.
In fact, at the Zhejiang University, students can learn scroll paintings
from very skilled painters.
Chinese scroll painting, the Chinese consider there to be a connection between
brush and ink, and color and silk or paper. The
result of this mythology is that an unusual and very special body of work is
created different from all other art forms. The
movements are often spontaneous and the lines appear to be frugal.
Interestingly, many of the great Chinese scroll painters actually began
as talented calligraphers.
