Qingming Festival marked in Chinese paintings

China's fifth solar term, Clear and Bright, will begin on April 5 this year, which coincides with a traditional Chinese festival, Qingming Festival, or Tomb-Sweeping Day.

The festival also marks a change in the weather, as temperatures begin to rise nationwide and rainfall increases, making it a crucial time for plowing and sowing in the spring.
