Description - Shin Hanga by Barry Till

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.
