[PANORAMIC CHINESE AGRICULTURAL LANDSCAPE WITH PADDY FARMERS CULTIVATING RICE FIELDS]. Woodblock print in two parts on rice paper, mounted on cardboard hand-scroll. S.l., t. et a.

304:91 cm (print); 320:97 cm (sheets).

Monumental woodblock print showing a panoramic Chinese agricultural landscape scenery mainly focussing on paddy farmers cultivating a big number of rice fields at different stages of production and harvesting. Complementary other members of an agricultural cooperative at their daily work are also depicted, as well as grassland, groups of trees and herds of small farm animals surrounding them.

The woodblock print was executed in two parts of the same size and mounted on cardboard hand-scroll. It is not signed or numbered. Though also undated, bikers and power lines imply a scenery taking place during the Maoist era of the 1950s and 1970s.

Margins in a few parts very slightly torn and creased, otherwise well preserved woodblock print, thanks to its tremendous size presumably unique in this state.
