History of Painting looks at the development of Chinese painting. In the Paleolithic period, rock painting was one of the first forms of painting. From there painting evolved through time, and the influences of foreign art forms affected the way the Chinese paid attention to depicting appearances. In the Yuan, Ming and Qing dynasty, literati painting gained rapid popularity. Painters added poetic charm to their work by using poetry, calligraphy, and seal cutting, which endowed Chinese paintings with national characteristics.
