Yangliu Qing New Year Pictures got their name for the original place, Yangliu Qing Town, in southwestern Tianjin. As a famous Chinese folk xylograph, it follows the painting traditions of both Song and Yuan Dynasty, and combines different art elements from the Ming Dynasty, such as woodcarving printing skills, industrial arts, dramatic performance, etc. Yangliu Qing New Year Pictures began during the Chongzhen period of the Ming Dynasty and reached its climax before the Guangxu period in the Qing Dynasty. The subject matter for the Yangliu Qing New Year Picture could cover anything including local people's daily life and customs. You could also find historical stories and fairy tales within the pictures. Every spring festival, many families would paste their windows and walls with different New Year pictures to show their joy and good wishes for the New Year. There are many Yangliu Qing New Year Pictures in the Yangliu Qiong New Year Picture Museum.
