Then there was Qin Qiong, Jing de, who is known as the door god of Tang Dynasty. Then it was recorded in the Song Dynasty's "Dream of Tokyo" about "paper painting" and "seasonal painting." finally, we are all familiar with today's Zhu Xianzhen wooden New year Pictures. He believes that woodblock New year paintings have gone through the Song, Yuan, Ming and Qing dynasties, although they have gone through the Song, Yuan and Ming and Qing dynasties. Kaifeng, not Zhu Xian, was the birthplace of this view Everyone is familiar with the "Zhu Xianzhen New year painting" quite different.

The wooden New year paintings handed down from history in Kaifeng Zhu Xianzhen were basically destroyed in the Cultural Revolution, and the old style was almost lost. Without history, how can they be passed down? In order to restore tradition and find the development context, he visited many places in Henan, Shanghai Lu Xun Memorial Hall and other places before the founding of the people's Republic of China left behind woodcut New year paintings. After the founding of the people's Republic of China, the people's Republic of China created a large number of new year paintings in the 1950s and 1960s, collecting a large number of first-hand information, a total of as many as 1, 000, and the collected New year paintings were reproduced in the scale of 1: 1, 300 of them.

As the inheritor of woodcut New year paintings, Ren He-lin especially emphasizes the original nature of art and the accuracy of the color of the modelling. He believes that the "sloppy" style of the academic community and the industry has shown a rare sense of "seriousness." At present, some academic research monographs and papers are mostly reproduced from online articles, lack of serious research on the engraving method of New year's Pictures. There are still many blind spots and misunderstandings in the study of woodcut New year's Pictures.

The New year's Pictures are the product of the civilization of the farming era and the testimony of the Chinese civilization. Henan woodplate New year paintings were found everywhere in the past, but not many have been left now. These New year's paintings have a certain collection value in addition to some.
