Decorative Borders in Chinese Folk Prints. Insight into the Náprstek Museum Collections

Open access

Abstract

The article examines the printed borders which adorn a moderate number of Yangliuqing prints from the collections of the Náprstek Museum. They are made up of auspicious elements common in the symbolism of Chinese folk art. Their design differs and falls at least into two groups. The reason behind placing the border on a picture is yet unclear.
