Catalogue of an exhibition held in 2016 at the Suzhou Municipal Centre of Public Culture. Shows 213 woodblock prints produced in Suzhou, China. The exhibition in a number of sections: 1. Changmen Gusu-style Woodblock Prints; 2. Buddhism, Taoism and Immortals; 3. Blessing, Goodness and Happiness; 4. Auspiciousness and Temperament; 5. Folk Customs and Sceneries; 6. Chinese Operas and Folklore; 7. Practical Use and Decoration; 8. Sightseeing and Scenic Spots; 9. Advertisements and Illustrations. The prints date from the 18th century Qianlong reign of the Qing dynasty through to the present day. The majority of the material Qing dynasty. An excellent research and visual reference on this sophisticated genre of Chinese woodblock printing. The early material is particularly fascinating and, until very recently, little-known or studied. A good amount of text in English. Fuller text in Chinese. Extremely hard to obtain. Apart from the difficulty in obtaining this work, one reason for the price is the inclusion of a finely-done original colour woodblock print of a 'meiren', a beautiful lady - or Suzhou Beauty? Out-of-print.
Subjects: Woodcuts Printing
