The study focuses on a certain case concerning the relationship between classical Chinese poetry and painting - a special art form named "ti-hua-shi" (poems inscribed on paintings). "Ti-hua-shi", originated no later than the Tang Dynasty (618-907), is a complex unity integrating words and images, so the research will be an interisciplinary one combing literature and art. It is expected to reveal the developmentan history and characteristics of "ti-hua-shi", while introducing some important poets or poet-painters and analyzing their most representative works.
