Rong Bao Zhai

Rong Bao Zhai
Rong Bao Zhai

The Rong Bao Zhai Studio (Studio of Glorious Treasures), the largest art shop in China, is on Liu Li Chang and specializes in the sale of traditional Chinese art works. These include watercolor woodblock reproductions, original paintings of modern and contemporary China, as well as artists' supplies such as brushes. inksticks, rice paper, and inkstones. Rong Bao Zhai also has a watercolor woodblock reproduction shop and if you have the time to tour the four processing workshops - tracing, carving. Printing, and mounting - you will be amazed at the exquisite workmanship displayed by the artists at work. Modern printing cannot faithfully reproduce these paintings and it is only in the Rong Bao Zhai that reproductions have been successfully made using woodblock printing in which a block of pear wood is made for each color and then individually applied. In the 1960's Rong Bao Zhai reproduced the famous Song painting, "Han Xi Zai's Evening Party" by Gu Hongzhong. Depicting the life of ancient nobles during the Five Dynasties period (907-960 A.D.), the original contained scores of figures all with very complicated colors. The reproduction displayed on the wall of the store is faithful to the original and required three thousand woodblocks for its realization.
