«Wealth, Good Fortune and Longevity – Chinese New Year Prints» - Exhibition @ Museum Rietberg | Zürich | Zürich | Switzerland

According to the Chinese lunar calendar, New Year falls on 16 February 2018. In China, it is tradition to rid the house of all misfortune and pray to the gods for their blessing. In this context, popular prints play a significant role. The colourful pictures provide insight into Chinese folk beliefs and reflect the woes and hopes of the general population.
