Taoyuan Scenic View

This is the translation of the artist's title for this painting.

Depicts a place that has come to be known as Shangra-La, though this Chinese title uses the characters 桃源 (táo yuán). There is also some dispute as to whether this place existed, and where it was located (most Chinese claim in China, any Tibetan will say Tibet). The rest of the title, 勝景 just means "scenic view".


When you search the internet for Taoyuan, many guesses and scenes come up for this mythical place including this one.

About the Artist

The artwork is signed 江舟 (Jiang Zhou) 2012, which is the artist's pen name. His real name is 宋平 (Song Ping). I don't have a lot of information about the artist, as I only met him in passing - I think I was in Guilin at the time, which is probably why the subject looks so much like the Li River of Guilin.

About this Artwork

Although this will not be cheap to frame when you receive it (because of the large size). I will certainly bring strong character to the room you hang it in.

This is painted on special xuan paper (rice paper) then mounted with white silk matting/border.

Please note: This painting includes a silk border similar to the what is shown above, but not a frame.
I recommend professional framing and matting for the best presentation of this work.
