Bird-and-flower oil painting (Traditional Chinese:, Simplified Chinese, literally 'flower-bird oil painting') is a kind of Chinese oil painting named after its subject matter. Normally, most bird-and-flower oil paintings belong to the scholar-artist style of Chinese oil paintings.
According Chinese tradition, bird-and-flower oil painting covers "flowers, birds, fish, and insects" (Traditional Chinese, Simplified Chinese: huā, niǎo, yú, chóng). It can thus deal with a wide range of natural topics, including flowers (plants), fish, insects, birds, pets (dogs, cats) etc.
