KAWASE HASUI - Four Shin-Hanga Masters

Gallery Exhibition from MAY 3 - JUNE 1, 2013

Davidson Galleries is pleased to present a wonderful collection of Shin-hanga woodblock prints by Kawase Hasui (1883-1957), Hiroshi Yoshida (1876-1950), Shiro Kasamatsu (1898-1991), and Ishwata Koitsu (1897-1987). Shin-hanga (new prints) was a Japanese print movement which flourished 1920-55. The term was intended to distinguish between the new direction of Japanese printmaking sosaku-hanga (creative prints) where the artist did three of what had been separate collaborations - design, create the printing matrix, and then pull the finished impression from that matrix. Shin-hanga represents a continuation of the traditional collaboration rooted in the 18th and 19th century ukiyo-e printmaking but where the subjects now reflect the influence of the West, Impressionism and other European centered art. The woodblock prints were largely exported in response to their enormous appeal for collectors in the West.
