Generally, it is believed that Chinese New Year pictures originated from Gate-God picture of Han dynasty, and the term "New Year picture" occurred during Qing dynasty. In the beginning, New Year pictures were only used to convey blessings. As time went by, this form of art has extended to reflect social and daily life of the new China after establishment in 1949. This book presents carefully-selected New Year pictures created from the 1950s to the 1990s, and categorizes them into the following chapters: portraits, celebration events, military affairs and national defense, International affairs, folk life, traditional festivals, national unity, and cultural education. The characteristic artistic approaches in these images will definitely provides readers with a unique reading experience.
