In spring of 2007 we received a set of four reduction woodblock prints, a complete set of a series titled "City Scenery". The prints are an impressive reflection of city life in China of 2006. In our view they are among the best in Chinese art prints that we have seen since our first encounter with modern Chinese art prints in 2003.

And they are as large as impressive. With an image height of 150cm (4.92 feet) they are the largest prints created in the technique of reduction woodblock prints that we have seen so far.
