After the 20th century, the development of traditional Literati Paintings underwent setbacks. People's cognition of such painting also had some bias under the impact of Western culture. Up to now, some of the cognitions have obviously become an intrinsic cognitive perspective and impression that people have on such painting. This cognition is also exposed to the current painting and calligraphy circle, and even has a certain impact on the main trend of Chinese painting and calligraphy. And the core of those problems is necessary to return to the cognition of the traditional Literati Painting concept itself. Therefore, after explaining the modern development background at the beginning, this paper firstly discusses Literati Painting and its related issues, and makes specific discussion on the relationships between "Literati Painting and realistic painting", "Literati Painting, imperial-court decorative painting and meticulous painting". On the basis of the discussion, the paper further overviews the times and the current status and proposes some specific thinking about the development of Literati Painting. The thinking is addressed from the perspectives of painter and the public in combination with typical cases of contemporary artists and the contents as aforementioned in the paper.
