It is one of the three famous New Year Pictures in China, which first appeared in Yangliuqing Town, west suburb of Tianjin in 17th century. Yangliuqing New Year Picture combines the methods of woodcarving and manual color drawing characters. Yangliuqing New Year Picture takes as the raw materials the daily life, folk Tailor-made and history stories processed either directly or indirectly, which is a popular folk art widely accepted by many people. Yangliuqing New Year pictures are characterised by their combination of block print and coloured hand drawing. The painting tradition passed down from the Song (960-1279) and Yuan (1271-1368) dynasties, and the integration of techniques of Gongbi figure paintings (gongbi is a traditional Chinese realistic painting characterised by fine brushwork and close attention to detail) into the folk New Year pictures enabled an organic combination of wood engraving with hand painting.
