These paintings are significant as mirrors of the two cultures. The book explores themes including the role of Japan in preserving a key parts of China's cultural and artistic heritage; the aspects of Japanese identity that derive from traditional Chinese culture; the use of Chinese paintings as models for key traditions of Japanese painting; and the use of Chinese paintings as status symbols in Japan.
