Chinese Houses in Painting (1)
by Contemporary Chinese Artists

April 2007
 

A Residence by the Pool

何为村庄之胜:凿水为濠,挑堤种柳。团团篱落,处处桑麻。花隐重门若掩, 堂需绿野犹开。

The painting depicts an ideal village setting illustrated by Ji Cheng of Ming Dynasty in his monumental work Craft of Gardens.

Chinese Urban Residential Area

设门有待来宾,留径可通迩室。似多幽趣,更入深情。

A traditional residential laneway in Suzhou, commonly seen (in old days) around the Yangtze River Delta region.

A Residence in the Farm

砖墙留夹,可通不断之房廊;板壁常空,隐出别壶之天地。时遵雅朴,古摘端方。境仿瀛壶,天然图画。意尽林泉之癖,乐余园圃之间。

The painting by a contemporary Chinese artist faithfully illustrates a traditional-style village house in China, that is restrained, elegant and reflective of its environment.

A Residence by the River

湖平无际之浮光,山媚可餐之秀色。眺远高台,搔首青天那可问;凭虚敞阁,举杯明月自相邀。

Chinese residences in traditional style stand by the river, borrowing the sound and scene of the natural setting, portrayed loyally through superb colour ink painting by a contemporary Chinese artist.
