Tanyuan Garden

Tanyuan is the private classic garden of Li Liufang, a litterateur, calligrapher and painter of the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644). He and Dong Qichang were among the nine great painters during the late Ming and early Qing dynasties. The garden was restored according to the existing records and poems of its owner. The two characters tan yuan above the gate are the handwriting of Li. The garden, with a gourd-shaped pond and winding corridors and bridges, features the typical garden style in Jiangnan (the region south of the Yangtze River).
