Sale Description

With this collection of Modern Japanese Woodblock Prints, discover why Japanese printmakers impacted the development of modern art. Featuring a variety of prints from movements that developed during the 20th century as a reaction to the dominate Ukiyo-e movement from the 17th-19th centuries. These movements include Shin-hanga (translating to new prints) which was a revival of Ukiyo-e with modern subject matter, and Sosaku-hanga (translating to creative prints) which was a backlash towards publishing houses and emphasized self-published prints that were deemed more creative, being the ultimate form of self-expression. Featured artists include some of the most prominent Shin-hanga artists such as Kawase Hasui and Ohara Koson. Also included are western artists who practiced the Japanese woodblock technique such as Paul Jacoulet and Paul Binne. This sale reveals the nuanced techniques involved in traditional Japanese woodblock print-making. Whether capturing the serenity of a temple or a moonlit ocean, these images exemplify both fine art and elegant decoration.
