The political and cultural background of the Song Dynasty provided fertile soil for the development of meticulous flower and bird painting, which made the art of flower and bird painting in my country reach its historical peak. As one of the four great masters of the Southern Song Dynasty, Ma Yuan left behind many valuable landscape paintings and flower and bird paintings for future generations. “White Rose” is a meticulous painting of flowers and birds by Ma Yuan, which embodies the characteristics of Song painting’s meticulous and deliberately seeking truth from life. This paper will analyze the “White Rose” from the aspects of shape, color, space layout, etc., and try to explore the creative methods and expression techniques of the Southern Song Academy's style painters.”
