Title:Literature in Line: Lianhuanhua Picture Stories from China
Description:Self description: "This exhibition [...] displays original drawings for fourteen lianhuanhua produced in Shanghai between 1950 and 1985, along with examples of illustrated books published in Shanghai between the late nineteenth century and the present decade. The term lianhuanhua, literally "linked pictures," was coined in Shanghai in the 1920s to describe a form of illustrated story that had been developing in urban China since the introduction of Western printing technology in the late nineteenth century. [...] The exhibition is divided into two parts. It begins with historical and mythological subjects, and progresses in the second section to modern subjects."
