Summary:
During the Song dynasty (960-1278), some of China's elite found an elegant and subtle means of dissent: landscape painting. By examining literary archetypes, painting titles, contemporary inscriptions and the historical context, Murck shows that certain paintings expressed strong political opinions - some transparent, others deliberately concealed.
