Unlike the dragon & phoenix motif a landscape was never ordered for the imperial court. On porcelain it was an important stylistic innovation of the 17th century primarily for scholarly taste of the literati class. The historical background at the time was shaped by the fall of the Ming dynasty and the establishment of the new Qing Dynasty, of ethnic Non-Chinese Manchu. The majority of the scholar officials continued to serve the new dynasty.However many scholar refused to colleborate with the new rulers. This fostered the old ideals of the literati class of a life not spent in office.
A typical projection of the literati ideals into a landscape are the tiny figures often found in the landscapes on porcelain: a traveller on a bridge; a figure admiring the harmony of the elements but never trying to dominate them, or the figure of the fisherman, depicted sitting on the shores or on a boat in the water. They are symbolic figures, an intellectual fantasy of fantasy of an ideal lif in retirement close to nature.
