Item Description

When someone tells you to look at a painting, I'll bet you think of an image on the wall. But in Chinese art, the tradition of scroll painting presents a painting in a different way. The image is painted on a roll of paper or silk and unrolled for viewing.

There are two types of scroll painting: handscrolls and hanging, or landscape, scrolls. Neither stays on the wall all the time. The scrolls are lightweight and mobile, and meant to be enjoyed for a while and then put away, to be brought back out and viewed on special occasions.

Unlike hand scrolls, hanging or landscape scrolls tend to be vertical. They are unrolled, can be hung on a wall and viewed all at one time. But they are still lightweight, portable and on the same silk or paper as handscrolls.

This beautiful Chinese scroll was painted between 1880-1900. It is entitled Spring. 

Chinese scroll, circa 1880-1900, landscape, Springtime.
