Under the Qing, traditional forms of art flourished and innovations occurred at many levels and in many types. High levels of literacy, a successful publishing industry, prosperous cities fed a lively and creative set of cultural fields. Yet, the most impressive aesthetic works were made among the scholars and urban elite. Calligraphy and painting remained a central interest for court painters, who considered the Four Arts part of their cultural identity and social standing.
