Chinese painting styles

Chinese Brush painting evolved from ancient Chinese Calligraphy through the centuries. The most important style is the Xieyi or 'Written Idea' form which was formulated by Chao Meng-fu (1254-1322). Simply put it is the expression of emotion in painting. This innovation shaped all later artistic development in China.
