The rise of the scholar class with strong personal characteristics has promoted the development of the artistic style of Chinese classical garden stone landscape, spawned a representative landscape aesthetic style, and influenced the aesthetic preference of other classes for stone landscape with the influence of the scholar bureaucrat class. According to their aesthetic pursuit, the scholar bureaucrat class derived a new and mainstream development direction for the stone landscape art. Based on their own aesthetics, the Chinese classical garden stone landscape art style began to take shape, with the means of accommodation and expression, with the ideal personality as the value standard, and with the principle of the unity of heaven and man as the law.
