In this study of Southern Song fans and album leaves, the beautiful landscape of the West Lake environs and the cultural life of the imperial capital, Hangzhou, emerge as key factors in the art of the period. Natural wonders, temples, and palatial settings are identified in both the visual and poetic imagery of the paintings. The catalog explores the interaction between the leading masters and their patrons, as well as the direct participation of imperial patrons in artistic production.
