Felicity vs. Luck  Collection of Late Qing Chinese Woodblock Prints from Russia

Nien Hua, usually made of woodblock print, is one of the most popular folk arts in China. It is featured by vivid form and bright color with subjects of felicity and luck in order for joyful ambience and praying for blessings during festival seasons. The works in the exhibition are from Vasily Mihailovitch Alexeiev (1881-1951), a Russian Sinologist, who acquired a great number in China during 1906 to 1926, now collected in the State Museum of the History of Religion, St. Petersburg, Russia. Presented here are 38 sheets from the museum, which cover four categories of Nien Hua for Chinese lunar year and meant for surrounding embellishment and cultural significance. We hope to bring the audience back to the old memories of lunar year with objectives of how the prints were developed, what creative wisdom was contained, and how we can appreciate them.
