An exhibition scrutinizing the teaching and research aspects of printmaking was launched in Beijing on Friday. 

The exhibition focuses on 270 diverse artworks from six studios at the Printmaking Department of the Central Academy of Fine Arts. These fine prints aim to show how the teaching methods at the department have evolved since it was established in the early 1950s and show the results achieved by artists at the school. 

The six studios have their own different specialties. Together they focus on research such as on the traditional techniques used in printmaking, how the art form developed in Western cultures and the form's interchangeability between classic and contemporary styles. 

This marks the first time that the more than 200 artworks have been put on public exhibition.
