About the Book


Chinese Paintings on Tea presents a collection of paintings relating to the Chinese tea heritage throughout eras and dynasties. As reflections of contemporaneous thoughts and emotions, these artworks illustrate values and virtues rooted deeply in the traditional Chinese culture. This book consists of four parts: the poetic connotations in paintings, the contemplation of retreat, the state of mind and the perspectives of ancient Chinese.


Three main categories of paintings are included in this book: figure paintings to highlight values in beings; landscape paintings to display harmonious relationships between humans and nature; and bird-and-flower paintings to reflect purity and life enjoyment. These paintings depict the various activities associated with tea.


Chinese Paintings on Tea is one attempt at illustrating the abstractions of Chinese culture with visual images, and opening the realms of arts in the rich culture related to tea.
