A grand exhibition featuring traditional watercolor printmaking opened in Hangzhou on Jan 19.

China is the cradle of printmaking art, which dates back to Han Dynasty (206 BC- AD 220). The development of this art is the epitome of Chinese history and demonstrates unique oriental aesthetics.

The exhibition not merely showcases artworks, but adopts new methods such as circular-screen movie and VR technology to better present these masterpieces to the public.

The exhibition will run until Mar 11.
