Chinese ink painting is one of the oldest art traditions still practiced today. A brush is dipped in ink and then applied to rice paper (xuanzhi) or silk. One important form of ink painting is Chinese calligraphy. From the Shang Dynasty in the 18th Century B.C. to the present day, various calligraphic styles have been developed.
