Painters of the so-called Literati (or Nanga) school, which flourished during the latter half of the Edo period (1615–1868), drew inspiration from ancient Chinese ink painting, calligraphy, and poetry to create a distinctive form of Japanese pictorial art. Such China-inspired paintings with literary associations or poetic inscriptions are introduced and interpreted.
