How do you hang a Chinese scroll painting? You can hang a long narrow painting by simply mounting a picture hanging hook, wall J-hook, or even a map tack on the wall at the appropriate height. The Chinese scroll can then be hung by its cord at the top. Be aware that the J-hook adhesive can leave an imprint that lightens your wall color after removal.
Be sure that the cord and upper bracing are secure. How do you read a Chinese scroll painting? Very often the paintings will be accompanied by Chinese calligraphy brushed onto the white space of the painting. This is a poem by the artist complementing the landscape or picture. Ideally, you should obtain a translation of the calligraphy.
How do you view a scroll painting? A Chinese handscroll is a long horizontal strip of distinct scenes that are meant to be viewed from right to left while rolling and unrolling the scroll so that only two feet are visible at one time.

The scroll is kept rolled up and stored carefully when not viewed. How do you mount and hang Chinese silk paintings? Chinese silk paintings can be mounted and framed for display on a wall.
