The 12 stunning woodblock prints detailed in the Slightly damaged 2020 Japanese Calendar were created by Kawase Hasui from 1920 to 1949. Throughout his career he created more than 600 prints and was one of the most prominent artists of the shin hanga (new prints) printmaking movement. His work evoked fleeting moments of seasonal beauty in his imagery, spring heralded by cherry blossoms and azaleas, autumn announced by a blaze of maple leaves. In concert with the opening of Japan’s cultural and political borders, Hasui was also influenced by Western realistic art, particularly photography. An increased emphasis on shading and linear perspective is noticeable in his atmospheric depictions of Japan’s architecture and landscape. The shin hanga movement began around 1915, and within a few years, Hasui began collaborating with publisher Watanabe Shozaburo, a relationship that would continue for the rest of Hasui’s life. Printed with soy-based ink on FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certified paper, the Slightly damaged 2020 Japanese Calendar is a very elegant Japanese wall calendar!
