Click to enlargeChinese GongBi Painting

Chinese GongBi paintings have endured an abrasive 2000 year history. The GongBi style had its beginnings approximately 2000 years ago during the Han Dynasty (206 BC - 220 AD) when Han's political stability and its prosperity favored the advancement of the arts. Chinese GongBi paintings peaked out between the Tang and Song Dynasties (618 AD - 1279 AD) where these paintings were endorsed and collected by the Royal families of China.The GongBi artists to perfect this style must totally commit themselves to the GongBi techniques. Only the wealthy could afford GongBi artists. This style of art was accomplished in secret in royal palaces and private homes.

Chinese GongBi paintings expired during a 700 year period of political and economic unrest of the Song Dynasty. For this length of time, the government was hostile to the GongBi artists. However, many of the GongBi paintings were saved from the Song Dynasty during this tormented 700 year period.

GongBi paintings became available to all through national art museums and public education due largely to a progressive modern Chinese government.

Traditionally, GongBi paintings feature extravagant and detailed flowers and birds. These intricate drawings of flowers and birds demand total concentration and the greatest of artistic ability. Thus, you arrive at a beautiful GongBi painting.
