[Chinese Culture Introduction]
Gongbi / 工笔画
simplified Chinese: 工笔; traditional Chinese: 工筆; pinyin: gōng bǐ; Wade–Giles: kung-pi
Gongbi is a careful, realist technique in Chinese painting. Gong means 'tidy' (meticulous brush craftsmanship). The gongbi technique uses highly detailed brushstrokes that delineates details precisely. The opposite of the interpretive and freely expressive, xieyi (寫意 'sketching thoughts') style.
The gongbi style originated from 'Silk Painting' 帛画 in 'Warring States period ' 战国时代 (475BC-221BC) also known as 'fine painting ' 细画, which flourished in the 'Tang Dynasty ' 唐朝 (618-907). These paintings peaked out between the Tang and Song dynasties (7th to 13th centuries) when these refined paintings were endorsed and collected by the royal families of China. To perfect this style, the gongbi artists must totally commit themselves to these techniques. Only the wealthy could afford such artists. This style of art was accomplished in secret in royal palaces and private homes.
During the 'Qianlong period' 乾隆年间 of the 'Qing Dynasty' 清朝(1636-1912), "gongbi painting" was formally proposed as a standardized painting category concept.
Cursive Script / 草书
traditional Chinese草書; simplified Chinese:草书; pinyin: cǎoshū
Cursive often mistranslated as grass script, is a script style used in Chinese and East Asian calligraphy. Cursive script is faster to write than other styles, but difficult to read for those unfamiliar with it. Cursive script originated ' Eastern Jin dynasty ' 东晋 in China.
