A Russian woodcut exhibition was held at the Lu Yanshao Art Gallery in Shanghai’s Jiading district from Sept 13.

The exhibition displayed over 70 realistic Russian woodcuts collected by the China Art Museum.

The Russian woodcut, combined with contemporary Russian experimental art, has a unique charm. It is different from contemporary Western woodcuts influenced by Pop Art and Chinese woodcuts which feature both traditional culture and western artistic styles.

The exhibition is the first cooperation between the Lu Yanshao Art Gallery and China Art Museum since Shanghai started a resources sharing scheme among 18 art galleries in the city.
