“Four Beauties” is a classical genre of Chinese woodblock printing, which depicts four beautiful ladies from Han and Jin Dynasty. The theme is considered the oldest decorative Chinese woodblock printing. From left to right: Lv Zhu, Zhaojun Wang, Feiyan Zhao and Banji. The background is decorated with peonies, scholar stones and winding corridors. Woodblock printing master Jiangmin Li’s interpretation of Four Beauties displays smooth and elegant lines, which won him a gold award at International Art Conference of Chinese Artists.

《四美图》是中国⼗⼆世纪⽊板装饰画,被认为是中国最早的版画。1908-1909年间,科兹洛夫从内蒙古额济纳旗墨城某佛塔盗挖并运回俄罗斯,现藏于圣彼得堡埃尔⽶塔博物馆。
《四美图》表现的是汉晋时期的四⼤美⼈,从左到右为绿珠、王昭君、赵飞燕、班姬。画⾯中四位美⼈造型体态丰盈优美,⼈物背景为盛开的牡丹、嶙峋的太湖奇⽯、 折曲的⽟⽯栏杆,线条细腻,姿态各异。画中⼀竖雕有边框⼩字“平阳姬家雕印”。
《四美图》由雕版印刷传承⼈李江民⼤师按原版复制。经多次试验,确定了原貌⾊调,装裱形式,历经⼀年多完成其作品。较好的体现了原图笔法洒脱、线条流畅、造型准确、形象⽣动的艺术特⾊。《四美图》作品的问世堪称当代雕版印刷的代表作,李江民先生也再次获得世界华⼈艺术⼤会国际⾦奖。
