Chinese Art

Chinese Painting
Chinese art is visual art that, whether ancient or modern, originated in or is practiced in China or by Chinese artists. Chinese art has arguably the oldest continuous tradition in the world, and is marked by an unusual degree of continuity within, and consciousness of, that tradition, lacking an equivalent to the Western collapse and gradual recovery of classical styles.
