  Southern Song Dynasty (1127–1279) | Thematic Essay | Timeline of Art History | The Metropolitan Museum of Art
In 1125, when the Jurchen, a seminomadic people from northeast Asia, invaded Song China and captured the capital at Bianliang (modern Kaifeng), founding their own Jin dynasty in the north, the Song court reestablished itself in the south in Hangzhou, where it continued to rule for another 150 years as the Southern Song dynasty.
Southern Song society was characterized by the pursuit of a highly aestheticized way of life, and paintings of the period often focus on evanescent pleasures and the transience of beauty.
One particularly important source of inspiration for Southern Song artists was the natural beauty of Hangzhou and its environs, especially West Lake, a famed scenic spot ringed with lush mountains and dotted with palaces, private gardens, and Buddhist temples.

 Chinese History - Song Dynasty 宋 (www.chinaknowledge.de)
The Song time is often called a "Chinese Renaissance" because - similar to the European renaissance - progress in technology and inventions, the upcoming of new philosophical interpretations of the old texts meant a renewal of the old and the creation of new streamings.
The Song period is marked by a revival of old Confucian traditions after the Tang age of Buddhism, and the prevailing position of civil scholars over the military age of Tang and Five Dynasties.
But Song culture was also a culmination of the heritage of two thousand years of culture, and from this point of crystallization on, Chinese thinking became orthodox, culture became sterile as if it had been unchanged since thousands of years.

 Song Dynasty Map   (Site not responding. Last check: )
The Song period divides into two phases, Northern Song (960 to 1127), and Southern Song (1127 to 1279).
The division was caused by the forced abandonment of north China in 1127 by the Song court, which could not push back the nomadic invaders.
The effect was to inhibit the societal development of premodern China, resulting both in many generations of political, social, and spiritual stability and in a slowness of cultural and institutional change up to the nineteenth century.

 Southern Song Landscape Painting
In the Southern Song period (1127-1279), after the capital was relocated to Hangzhou because of the loss of Kaifeng and most of north China to the Jurchen Jin dynasty, court painters continued to paint landscapes, but favored small formats and more lyrical treatments.
Characteristically Song is the neat fit of elements into small spaces, like architecture or rocks, to suggest a coherence of space.
Crisp, symmetrical lines indicate the use of a rounded, vertically held brush (later favored by the literati, as it was closer to that used in writing).

The peace was signed in 1164 after only 16 months of fighting, but the Song had clearly reclaimed the initiative from the barbarians and the Emperor and his top generals were much feted on their return from the front.
This was disturbing news to the Song court, as Chinese strength lay in the mutually hostile tribal divisions of barbarian society.
