Ascending the river on Qingming Festival is one of the ten most famous Chinese paintings that are regarded as a nation treasure, kept in the palace museum in Beijing. It is a typical genre painting of the northern song dynasty which was painted by a famous painter—Zhang Zeduan.It portrays the buildings and daily lives of people in the capital Bian Jing, in Northern Song dynasty.

The first part of the scroll is the beautiful spring scenery in the suburb which includes several cottages, bridges, streams, old trees and small boats. This part presents the certain time and customs of Qingming and makes preparation for the following part.

The middle part is the busy wharf of Bian river, the vital

communication line in song dynasty.

The third part is the crowded downtown streets where the buildings are arranged in order, including tearoom, wine shops, hotels,

temples, moreover, there are medicine shops, fortune-telling booth, face-lifting booths and some other booths that are barely imaginable. The streets are filled with various people from various professions, wearing various clothes, doing various things. The picture seems alive and full of energy and vitality, just like the scenery is vividly in our eyes, you can see the people walk by and hear what they are talking about. Through the busy and prosperous life in the picture, you can gain a satisfying and happy feeling, and you may feel that even in different time about one thousand years apart you can know their lives and understand what they are doing.* They will never know people in future would appreciate them in picture and research into their lives. Maybe we live in today ,studying or working hard to find a good job to get what we think a better life, all these in the eyes of future ’s people is just a subject to study, but the various inner sour, sweet, bitter, hot feeling ,who will know, only themselves. Just like in the picture, the person drinking a cup of tea may worry about the harvest of this year, the person who are speaking with others with smile may be annoyed and do not want to hear what the person opposite her said. I think appreciating painting is an interesting activity, especially the Chinese paintings which pay more attention to the spirit rather than the form.

Zhang Zeduan planned the composition of persons, buildings,

transportations, trees, streams subtly, achieving sense of

three-dimensional space. Furthermore, He cultivated every person vividly so they have their own action and spirit. To sum up, the painting Ascending the river on Qingming Festival achieves the goal that all Chinese painters pursue—to capture the spirit as well as the form of subjects. It has a very high historical value and art level.
