The tradition of Chinese painting dates back to 7th century. It was developed in several ways, influenced by Japanese and European painting. Despite this, it preserved its individual character. The pictures explained thoughts and feelings about some real situation. It was the reason why they were completed with some caligraphical poem. According to the mood of the picture and the words of poem the author chose also his own seal – its print in red wasn´t only sign under picture, but it had a special meaning.
The artsmen saw their job as a mission, so they lived very modestly.
The painting was done on a roll of rice paper or piece of silk. The motifs also appeared on ceramics, porcelain and fans.
