This study examines female image in Chinese popular print from the Late 19th Century to the Middle of 20th Century. This study aims to examine female image in Chinese popular print within the context of Chinese history and culture. The study raises the issue of transformation of female image in Chinese popular print associated with the socio-political changes that occurred in China in the first half of the 20th century. An attempt was made to create a typology of female characters in Chinese popular print from the Late 19th Century to the Middle of 20th Century, as well as to consider the evolution of prints within each type, based on methodological developments by V.M. Alekseev, which is based on the thesis that popular print is a "small" culture which reflects in the specific refraction the "big" Chinese culture.
