Description


The shin hanga (?new print?) movement flourished in Japan for almost fifty years after being set in motion and nurtured by publisher Watanabe Shozaburo (1885?1962). Employing the traditional ?ukiyo-e quartet a production system consisting of artists, carvers, printers, and publishers?shin hanga attracted Western as well as native artists. The studio teams created woodblock prints that updated traditional ukiyo-e (?pictures of the floating world?) prints by including Kabuki actor portraits, ?beauties, ? and landscapes and other nature themes, often birds and flowers. With lavish illustrations and expert commentary, Shin Hanga: The New Print Movement of Japan details the shin hanga movement and presents splendid reproductions of works by its principal artists.
