Streams and Mountains without End: Landscape Traditions of China

About a thousand years ago, Chinese landscape painter Guo Xi posed the question, “in what does a gentleman’s love of landscape consist”.

To answer this question, the MET gathered more than 120 Chinese landscape paintings in three rotations and put up an exhibition titled “Streams and Mountains without End” offering audiences insight into the tradition of Chinese landscape paintings.
