Library Resources on Gender Studies

 

Chinese New Year prints (known as Nianhua (年畫)) are a popular folk art for many years. They are a type of woodblock prints dating back to the Western Han Dynasty (206 BC-AD 24) and began to boom in the latter part of the Ming Dynasty (1386 to 1644). In celebrating Lunar New Year, people post nianhua on walls and doors in their homes to pray for good luck and fortune.
