Information about how this Asian painting is mounted
山河秀色

Big Li River Landscape

This beautiful Chinese landscape painting features the Li River near Guilin.

The title, 山河秀色 translates as, "The beautiful scenery of mountains and rivers," or literally translating the 4 characters you get, "Mountain river shows/beautiful color."

This simply stunning landscape painting shows the Karst landscape of the vertical mountains around the Li River. These mountains are sometimes beyond vertical. They often have unusual shapes that the locals have named. One I remember when I sailed down the Li River was the climbing tortoise. At a certain angle, it really looked like the silhouette of a tortoise climbing up the mountain.

Down below, you see people rowing boats and rafts made of bound bamboo. Typical modes of transportation, even today on the Li.

This is a great large painting for a restaurant, or behind your sofa.


This work was done in Chengdu by Huang Xin'an (Pronounced a little bit like "who-ong shin un") from the Sichuan (Szechwan) Province of China.

After I bought this work in Chengdu, I later returned to Beijing and had it mounted with a traditional silk brocade border in our workshop. This makes a nice, ready-to-frame piece of wonderful hand-painted art.

The story behind how I found this art...

I lost track of Huang Xin'an after my last trip to Chengdu. His phone number was out of order, and I was disappointed that I could not contact him to get more of his paintings.

I make the decision to go to Chengdu on my new art-buying trip mostly because of him.

After 15 hours on a slow train, I arrive in Chengdu. I check-in at Sam's Guesthouse (a hangout for backpackers from around the world, and a hostel with reasonably-priced beds). After a much-needed shower, I head out to find Huang Xin'an.

Taxis drive at the speed-of-light in Chengdu (the city boasts over 1000 fatal auto accidents per year), I arrive in no-time at the place I last found Mr. Huang. Sure enough, as I walk down the alley toward his gallery, he sees me and runs out to greet me. I'm really happy to see him, and the feeling is mutual.

Huang Xin-An

I tell him how I came to Chengdu just to buy art from him (after not being able to reach him on the phone). He is so honored that I think he wants to hug me. He offers me a chair, and says he's painted a lot of work over that last 9 months with both me and my customers in mind. I was also honored by this gesture. He shows me a lot of new work in styles that I like.

I spend 2 days with Mr. Huang and we talk about a lot of new ideas and artwork that I think my western customers will like. He offers to close his gallery for a few days, and paint the art that I asked for. So I took a few days to meet and visit other artists in Chengdu. When I return to Mr. Huang's gallery, I am not disappointed. He did such a great job, words can't describe.
