This painting is known as the “Along the River During the Qingming Festival” painted by Zhang Zeduan. This picture says a lot of things. This picture shows more than 550 people. All of these people have different facial expressions. They also are wearing clothes of different colors. However, the most important idea in the painting is the life of the common people.
Zhang Zeduan, who painted the picture, was a famous painter who lived during the Song Dynasty. This picture that I selected, ” Along the River During the Qingming Festival “, was probably the most important historical painting that he created. This is very important because it gives the philosophy of life of the people in the Song Dynasty. I chose this picture because I am interested in all the different people in the picture. I like to see all the people are doing things. I also like looking at the past from the point of view of Zhang Zeduan.
What I see is a large group of people who are all very busy. I also see a world that is very different from today. Everyone seems to have things that they are doing. Because there are so many activities going on, there is a lot to look at. I will always be curious as to what the people in the picture are doing.
