Shin Hanga: The New Print Movement in Japan

Shin Hanga: The New Print Movement in Japan Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

Book News Annotation:

In the early 20th century, Japan's Watanabe Shozaburo determined to revive his country's interest in the ukiyo-e art form, commissioning modern versions of the centuries-old wooden block prints and initiating the shin hanga or "new prints" movement. Through essays and approximately 100 color reprints, Till chronicles the local and international popularity of shin hanga prints and features important artists including Yoshida Hiroshi, Ito Shinsui, and Ohara Shoson. All prints are drawn from the collection at the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria, British Columbia, for which Till is curator of Asian art.
