  • Function
    Landscape painting and calligraphy were the ultimate expressions of art in traditional China. The ideal for the scholar was to commune with nature, walking among the mountains and streams, but this was generally not practicable for a busy official, so taking out a landscape painting and allowing the mind to wander its paths was a substitute for this.
