Chinese "Chan" art is similar to Japanese "Zen" meditational art. It acts to inspire the viewer expanding the imagination beyond the soft painted understatement of the artist. Regarding Stories - Most of these long landscapes tell stories like "to share a glass of wine with an old friend, a thousand are too few".
