Representation of characteristics of Asian art or culture appearing in Western practice.
Works of art designed to be produced so that there is more than one original, theoretically in unlimited numbers. The most common examples are works produced from plates or negatives, including engravings, etchings, lithographs, photographs, and other prints. A record for multiples typically includes general information about a printing plate and the prints made from it. This designation may also be used for sculptures and other works produced in multiples from a plate, mold, computer program, or other device or method. In cataloging, it is useful to catalog the group of multiples as a whole when the individual works will not be cataloged separately, or when there are characteristics of the whole multiples group that do not apply to each item in the group.
Refers to the international art and cultural movement that flourished in Britain and America in the 1950s and 1960s. Influenced by Dada, the movement advocated the use of everyday imagery, such as advertisements, signs, and comic strips, executed in the techniques and graphic styles of mass media. The movement respresented a move toward a more objective, immediate art form after the dominance of Abstract Expressionism.
Prints made using the process of lithography, which is a planographic printing process in which a design is deposited on the stone or plate with a greasy substance which will accept ink.
Chinese New Year
Annual 15-day festival in China and Chinese communities around the world that begins with the first day of the first lunar month, which occurs sometime between January 21 and February 20 according to Western calendars, and lasts until the following full moon. The festival originated in ancestor and deity worship rituals in the Shang Dynasty (ca. 16th to 11th century BCE); it was firmly established in the Western Han Dynasty (206 BCE-8 CE). Activities associated with the festival include cleaning the home, worship of deities and ancestors, family reunions, preparation of special foods, receiving cash in red envelopes, posting poetry, lighting candles, and setting off firecrackers, symbolizing wishes for a happy new year and a fortuitous future.
