Historical Context:
Zhou Shenghua was one of the leading modern Chinese woodcut print artists. His images consist primarily of Chinese landscapes depicting the various seasons. His images are often full of extremely detailed trees where nearly each individual branch, limb and leaf is visible among the forest filled landscape he depicts. This level of detail takes considerable time and patience when working in the medium of woodcut prints.
