On August 6, 1991, the Ministry of Culture of the People's Republic of China formally nominated Xukou Township in Jiangsu Province as a "Kingdom of Chinese Calligraphy and Paintings."
Yushe and Yaoshe villages in the county are particularly famous for their output of calligraphy and painting. Over five million calligraphy and paintings have been produced in the county by more than 600 artists since 1956. In 1988 the "Youth Calligraphy and Painting Research Society of the Fragrant Hill of Wuxian County" was established. Xukou Village's farmer paintings are renowned for their unique style integrating a strong flavor of life with the fragrance of the soil.
