Guo Xi was a well-known landscape painter in the Northern Song Dynasty. In Linquan Gaozhi, he proposed the functions of landscape painting as "pleasant" and "getting my heart." Through Guo Xi’s identity and the idea of "Confucianism and Taoism", a large number of literati were selected and appointed in the Song Dynasty, forming a social background of "the prosperous era of literary rule", advocating the erudite style of writing, and the maturity of Song Dynasty landscape paintings and popularization among literati and officials.
