Attracted and charmed by the appearance and beauty of Mount Huangshan, the Huangshan school of painting has evolved into the main style of landscape painting.
The Ming and Qing artists such as Shi Tao, Jian Jiang and Mei Qing lived alone on the mountain, searching for novelty, and drawing strength from the beautiful landscape to enrich their creativity. With light touch, graceful outlines and elegant styles, their painting formed a unique school. Other artists were Xue Zhuang, Cheng Sui, Zheng Xue, Ding Yunpeng, Zha Shibiao, Dai Bengxiao and Xiao Yuncong. Artists of modern and contemporary times such as Huang Binhong, Zhang Daqian, Li Keran and Liu Haisu are also fascinated with Mount Huangshan. They express their emotion through their drawings and create a spiritual and inspiring artistic conception.
