The tale of the Peach Blossom Spring is often painted.  There are three handscrolls of the story in the British Museum: Shen Zhou, Shibata Gito after Go Shun, blue-green landscape byTani Buncho after Qiu Ying.

Here is a walk through a handscroll from the Wou Lien-Pai Museum of Chinese Art, courtesy of Roderick Whitfield: Peach Blossom Spring.ppt

Some of you might remember Xu Bing’s installation at the V&A in 2013: Travelling to the Wonderland was inspired by the Peach Blossom Spring.
