    About

    Ding Liangxian produced multicoloured prints illustrating well known ballads of the time. 'Counting Song of the Twelve Months in the Tune of the Tea Pickerís Song' (Shieryue caichage) was presumably the final image in a set of four prints, and consists of three scenes featuring ballads for October, November and December according to the lunar calendar. At first sight three scenes look to be consecutive illustrations of one story. In fact, the print incorporates stories from three different popular dramas, turning important scenes from each into a ballad. Retaining the traditional style of late Ming figural prints and illustrating popular folk songs with the scenes of well-known dramas that were being performed at the time, Ding Liangxian created yet another new type of woodblock prints for urban audiences.
