Mt. Huangshan is the birthplace of the Huangshan school of painting. In the preface of A Collection of Drawings by the Ming and Qing Artists, Li Yimang, a renowned contemprorary artist and painter, says: "Attracted and charmed by the appearance and connotative beauty of Mt. Huangshan, the Huangshan schools of painting has eventually evolved into a typical one of landscape painting."

The Ming and Qing artists such as Li liufang, Shi Tao, Jian Jiang and Mei Qing lived alone in the mountain, search for novelty, drawing nourishment from the beautiful landscape to enrich their artist creation. They observed all the miraculous peaks before they made their drawings. With the compact touches, the graceful outlines and the elegant styles, their painting formed a unique school. Added to them were Xue Zhuang, Cheng Sui, Zheng Xue, Ding Yunpeng, Zha Shibiao, Dai Bengxiao and Xiao Yuncong. Artists of modern and contemporary times such as Huang Binhong, Zhang Daqian, Li Keran and Liu Haisu are also fascinated with Mt. Huangshan. They express their emotion through their drawings and create a spiritual but inspiring artistic conception. Their paintings are of great value of art.
