The Fuchun River in Zhejiang province right outside Hangzhou has drawn artists to it’s beautiful landscape and scenery. This thesis explores representations, including poetry, painting, and film, on the Fuchun River. First, Six Dynasties poetry and letters illustrate the time period’s focus on travel literature and unbound nature. From the Yuan Dynasty, Huang Gongwang’s painting Dwelling in the Fuchun Mountains conveys visual representation of the river. Lastly contemporary artists’ film and poetry interact with previous representations on the river to inform their own interpretation and respond to the changes to the natural environment.
