Content preview:

The appreciation and construction of Jiangnan gardens in the late Ming Dynasty was greatly influenced by the aesthetics of landscape painting, not only in the form of the scenery, but also in the view of the landscape. With rockery construction as the prominent aspect, the garden space experience presents unprecedented new ideas, from which we can have a deeper understanding of the relationship between landscape gardens and landscape paintings.
