This book departs from this traditional view to establish Li Gonglins importance in Chinese Buddhist art history through both the local Longmian Chan and the larger Northern Song religious contexts. It offers a fresh understanding of the impact the intermingling of Tiantai, Pure Land, Huayan and Chan philosophies and practices had on Li Gonglins faith and art.

Painting Buddhist subjects to Li Gonglin was an expression of faith.
