Twentieth-century Japanese printmaking has received relatively little attention to date. However, this publication changes that. The shin hanga (‘new prints’) are balanced designs, printed on luxurious paper with the finest pigments and in smaller editions. They are the result of the traditional but successful collaboration between artist, publisher, block cutter and printer. It is not so much in their subject matter as in their visual language that the shin hanga prints distinguish themselves from their traditional predecessors.
This book offers a unique selection to explore twentieth century Japanese printmaking. The prints reproduced largely come from two large private collections, along with a few works from the Royal Museums of Art and History in Brussels and a few exceptional pieces from the family collection of publisher Watanabe, the man who pioneered it all.
